Thinking of posting a few more Fall photos and thought this one might compliment the series. There are 20 Maple trees here including the supporting bambo stabilizers beside each. In the workshop I have the original posted. I cloned out the strappings because they distracted the flow of the vertical trunks. I changed the image porportion dimensions to add to the diagonal aspect of the leaves. I do hope you like the final result.
In the background behind these trees is a road and of all the luck a pickup truck turning at an intersection. You can see that in the original. I do hope you like the final result.

Cadrage serré, Paul, faisant jaillir les splendeurs des couleurs d'automnes. C'est au Canada entre autres que les automnes sont les plus jolis.
Une exposition parfaite et des couleurs qui explosent pas transparence.

an excellent photograph, the image is cut in two on the diagonal with the straight brown tree trunks in one half and the beautiful colours of Autumn in the other. A superb composition Paul, well done.

RED-REd-REd,the firemen are coming!
I like the way the light is going through the lesves,depending of their orientation,giving differnt kind of red with the green skeleton in the middle.
Good diagonal that takes our eyes down.
Nice work you did removing the strings.
An attention grabber
Have a good WE

Really fantasic PP work to bring this photo to life. The square framing enhances the symmetry and geometry. (lots of try's...ha, get it, tree's...god, so corny). Anyhow. The diagonal line of the, eh hem, trees looks great. Bright striking colors and beautiful light. Another great representation of fall Paul.

Good composition with the row of trees and the wonderful colore leafs.Good lightmanagement, contrast and grphism with the diagonal of the leafs and the vertical trunks.
jjbach (9324) 2006-11-05 9:14
Excellent composition, very original. The point of view as well as the framing is fantastic. Lovely colours too. Splendid work!

You are achieving quite the neat effects with the bamboo stabilizers enhancing the symmetry. This low angle POV works so well, with the eye craning to discern a little background with the road nicely appearing. In looking at the original in the WS, its clear that this provides a good lesson on the merits of tight cropping to salvage a superb scene from a rather unbalanced original. Well captured.
Cormac (26563) 2006-11-05 14:05
Great work with these trees! I like repeated tree trunks, which are made to appear much closer because of the telephoto compression. The colour of the leaves is great too, because of the backlighting. Well done!

Hi Paul - again an excellent combination of geometry and backlit leaves, the mix of crimson and green is deligghtful.
Isab (865) 2006-11-07 18:12
la composition est très originale. Les couleurs et la netteté sont parfaites.
