Trout Lake Park, in Vancouver. I earlier posted another shot of the same place, but in the vertical format. It's interesting to see the differences between the two shots as the vertical shot has a good sense of depth to it, as it gets closer to the foreground. This one has a much great sweep and sense of space, and is not as closed in as the vertical format. In both cases, the beautiful red leaves of the Canadian Maple Tree are the star attraction.

A fiery representation of the changing seasons. What I love about it is the contrast between green/reds and the lone figure wandering down the lane. The curve draws the eye along until it comes into contact with the figure. Exceptional textures are seen in the bark, esp. in the closest tree trunk. Wonderful clarity and good mysterious mood, made evident by the lingering fog.

Very well taken and composed scenery from the Trout Lake Park. Excellent play of the colours, light and shadows. You captured a beautiful carpet of fallen leaves. I like very much misty background. Thanks for sharing

Absolutely stunning vivid colors! good composition and pov. Very nice shot.

A beautiful, beautiful composition. I like the way both the path and leaves go curvy (probably beacause of vehicles passed by). I like the colour and the foggy morning. An excellent combination.

what a nice image........
singuanti (15250) 2007-11-28 19:20
Hi Alvin. Dang that's nice! It's so good for your colors having leaves that are full of color versus being brown and dead. It's also good how our pathway ends mysteriously. Very nicely done Alvin!

Wow, what an amazing shot with these vibrant fall colours! I love the perspective and how the trees stand out against the foggy background. Excellent composition with stunning colours, light and details! This is an amazing place! Excellent work, Alvin!
PS: Finally I have a little time again for TE, I've been so busy lately! Take care!

Seems to me I recall this photos posted in vertical format Alvin. I remember it well. And this position is just as nice as the other one too. Very nice fall colors and great perspective with the twisting roadway. I think the only thing I would have done is crop out that no parking sign. People should be allowed to park here to take pictures of the trees!

Nice nice autumn colors.
daddo (25553) 2007-11-28 23:58
This is beyond nice, it's a stunner. The colours are unbelievable. The PoV which emphasizes the lovely curve bordered by the green, the trees leaning at different angles and the human figure in the distance, all combine to create a memorable image.My compliments. Klaudio.

So much colour!! what a beauty!... how I wish I can walk there...
jjcordier (78388) 2007-11-29 0:37
L'image est superbe avec ses couleurs d'automne invraisemblables (peut-être un tout petit peu trop saturées quand même?) mais j'ai quand même un faible pour la version verticale sans que je puisse vraiment expliquer pourquoi.
marietom (34609) 2007-11-29 0:40
Superbe composition, avec ces arbres joliment rouge, et ce vert de l'herbe.
Très bien vu.
carper (96) 2007-11-29 2:46
it a fine one Alvin,
the road is nice and your shot gives a good perspective, fine effect that red-brown and that green, good photo job here, I like it, have a nice day.
dcawker (5717) 2007-11-29 3:04
Beautiful light, colors, and composition here, Alvin.. Really nice work! Regards, Doug
jonathan_hart (21274) 2007-11-29 3:11
very nice perspective with the burning red colours of fall
the fog is a great bonus
nice contrast cold & warm colours
Floydian (30970) 2007-11-29 6:50
We have seen this composition before from you, but still it looks impressive how you play with the bend and the fall colors on the path. The bending looks really good, perfect perspective created.
Fis2 (89363) 2007-11-29 6:54
Excellent colors! Good frame and composition. Beautiful autumn. Very impressive picture.
Dyerco (10185) 2007-11-29 7:56
Good capture. The road,fence and trees all lead our eye to the lone walker. Looks like soft morning light.
paprika-jancsi (2349) 2007-11-29 8:06
HI Alvin, thanks for liking my fall shot. this is similar idea but far more striking and diverse. Best regards, Jancsi
laroze (965) 2007-11-29 9:45
Splendid shot with the beautiful colors of autumn in the foreground and the morning fog in the background.Good light and sharpness.
Have a nice day
gneufeld (15890) 2007-11-29 13:20
Another fine autumn shot with a well balanced composition and nice use of the diagonal of the tree row to add interest to this stunningly colorful image. Its neat to see the fog in the background. Great work and TFs. Gerald
markstaples (15670) 2007-11-29 13:23
The colours just hit you in this, they are so vibrant. Then as we look through the trees we see the fog to add an air of mystery. A nice curved perspective too. Nice one.
leo61 (0) 2007-11-29 15:36
Hi Alvin !
I remeber your vertical posted image from thid POV and this one looks great too.Wonderful red tones and a nice atmosphere with the fog in the distance.The person walking in the distance makes the composition perfect.
Tomorrow I escape from cold and grey Germany for seven weeks and I wish you a peaceful christmastime and a great start for the next year.
pierrefonds (59812) 2007-11-29 18:26
Congratulations for your 400th post on TE, a nice image of the path covered with the fallen leaves and of the trees with the fall colors. The photo has a good composition, DOF and beautiful colors. thanks for sharing.
molla (7129) 2007-11-29 23:37
The green field really gives the color of the tree, cleverly composed, this is an other of your great visual national poems of Canada.
ChrisJ (103565) 2007-11-30 1:52
Fantastic repetition of the trees, with superb Fall colours, & good sharpness. Tfs!
PixelTerror (0) 2007-11-30 4:31
I can't really tell whether I prefer this one or the vertical version, on that one the format puts more emphasis on the path curve perspective, which I like, and there are plenty of nice red colors to see, so it's also a good one.
Have a nice day JY

Hi ALvin, fantastic image!
i love the subject at the end of the road and the green line in the middle of the red..
i prefer the horizontal image, but it is wonderful also the vertical composition
Moyano (163) 2007-12-01 7:35
Terrific colours. Definitely a strong spacious feel to it. Seems like this colourful tree gallery is warm and secluded from the rest of the park, which is grey and chilly.
I'm falling in love with Nikon more and more...:]
Royaldevon (33033) 2007-12-02 10:45
I have enjoyed browsing your gallery.
I am impressed! I particularly liked this shot for its POV, its composition and that inceredible colour! The quarter circle of track, drawing the eye with it, also helps to really make it so special!
Many thanks for your warm feedback on 'Goodbye Grassington'.
danyy (0) 2007-12-02 15:56
on ne peut pas se tromper sur la saison ici, les teintes rouges sont arrogantes. Le cadrage qui accompagne la courbe depuis le coin inférieur droit est parfait.
Elle manque un peu de netteté mais cela la rapproche un peu d'une peinture.
C'est agréable au regard.
erdna (5711) 2007-12-04 7:50
I just have to comment on this simple but magnificent photo. Your station point with the circular sweep of the perspective of the road and putting just right amount of area inside your frame makes a very stable composition. The color is there. Nature made it, but your keen eye saw the beautiful separation of the red leaves by the blue green color of the fog and the horizon. I prefer this than the vertical format previously posted.
westozman (3193) 2007-12-04 16:17
Great mood with this shot - the saturated color of the leaves against the muted, misty grass and trees in the background. I guess late October/early November is the best time to capture the fall colors in Vancouver, eh?
plimrn (21344) 2007-12-05 9:38
It is wonderful the way you framed & captured the curve of the path, the lone walker, the carpet of scarlet leaves, and the contrast with the green; while the foggy atmosphere puts the shot WAY over the top. One can almost feel the cool damp it makes everything so real.
rminkow (1556) 2007-12-06 7:09
Hi Alvin..this is a really a beautiful shot...great composition and great colors and clarity...very nice job.
maximage (15535) 2007-12-08 14:27
Lumière et couleurs extraordinaires! Jolie compo bien équilibrée. J'aime beaucoup la petite brume à l'arrière. J'aurais personnellement enlevé le panneau pas très joli au milieu de l'image.
Amitiés et salutations.
bruce_wayne (1507) 2007-12-09 15:55
Great...I am without words! Your picture is incredible, several colors, contrast between red and green is very interesting. Well done!
vero07 (1781) 2007-12-12 9:11
Amazing composition with lovely colours, specially those of the red road in contrast with the green field. The idea of include the frog it's perfect. To the end of the road we could see a mysterious atmosphere...
Very well done!
changweb (10) 2007-12-12 20:41
beautiful colors Excellent
mvdisco (17784) 2007-12-12 21:08

ArtLook (2348) 2007-12-18 7:22
Great autumn colors on this picture. I like your composition with a walking man in background, it seems very peaceful place... I like the curved line of beatiful trees, very well framed. Great shot, Bravo!
With BEST Regards,
