I know that this is not fall season, but I found this shot from my old stock and couldn't resist posting it. Hope you'll like it. A soft focus filter was used here.

Good shot and a beautiful composition. I like the way you edited this shot and made it a dreamy look. I also love the color.

Wonderful fall colour here. The soft focus filter adds a nice creative touch although it does seem to be more out of focus on the right side. I'm not sure if the filter was on camera or in Photoshop. A wonderful image nontheless.

Hi Shaeri. It may not be fall where you are but it is getting very close here ;-). Wonderful capture, I love the warm colours and minimalist composition. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Shaeri, Nice color effect. Like a dream.

Lovely colors and a good composition to have the bench here. A great place to relax. Very soft tones. Nice work.

The autumn colours are beautiful and make a colourful background for the seat just waiting for someone to sit down. I'm not such a fan of the soft focus filter, but that's just a matter of personal taste. Well worth posting.

nice shot with the fallen leafs on the ground to synthesize a romantic environment.The use of soft focus filter i can say that is a clever idea.well done.
chpp (4281) 2008-03-24 7:21
very nice shot, great colours and light and very nice compo. May be the soft focus on the right is a little too much compared to the other sections. Did you cropped the image?
Anyways, is a good picture
Have a nice day

This photo is great, and really very artistic with nice soft tones. You made use of the soft focus filter in a wonderful way. Excellent edit work.

Wow, Nice frame in the Fall. Ho man you did a great work on it.
stego (24126) 2008-03-24 12:22
I wonder how a season that tends to be depressing is at the same time so prone to lovely images like this one. An empty garden bench in an Autumn scene... It's hard to imagine anything more melancholic, unless a softener filter is used.

Simple, beautiful and artistic! Thank you for sharing! Regards Stella

Good shot and a beautiful composition.
The autumn colours are beautiful
thanks for sharing
ocskaymarci (2684) 2008-03-25 3:26
Very beautiful photo with excellent warm colours and fantastic composition. I really like the empty bench!
I just don't like that focus effect, I think it was needless, but that's just my opinion!
Gustaw (21670) 2008-03-25 8:39
It is very beautiful photo. I like your composition. Are you a painter? Beautiful colours. Good composition. Nice light. Well done.
Tue (29948) 2008-03-25 9:54
Great photo from the archives! It's a very nice capture with a nice dreamy mood. The autumnal colours of the background are very nice and pleasant. The bench is very well placed off-centred in the foreground. Thanks for sharing!
avene (12675) 2008-03-25 10:48
beautiful colours in this melancholic shot, and I like how you have composed the photo with the bench just off the center leaving enought space "for contemplation".
but I'm not sure about the filter, because the effect is visible only in the right part. I don't think the soft focus adds much to the shot right now, although I can easily imagine a different crop with soft focus surrounding the bench - I think that would work really well to create a dreamy mood.
other than that - impeccable quality.
with kind regards,
gracious (20025) 2008-03-26 0:44
Very beautiful image of autumn colouration!
very good use of soft focus filter to have the nice effect on the shot
noborders (1010) 2008-03-26 2:22
Nice and soft and poetic, Shaeri ! Colours are wonderful but there is a bit too much blur for my taste on the right...
A beautiful photo nonetheless !
(PS : I'd love to see again photos such as the little girl dreaming in the park : it was *delicious* !
kiks (11785) 2008-03-26 2:29
Hi Shaeri, usually i don't like the use of softfocus but o this one it works very well giving something dreamy to the place.
I like it!
JCG (35129) 2008-03-26 4:48
Pretty image processing here, I like this impression of daydream. The autumnal colors are very pleasant. The bench invites to the relaxation and meditation. Beautiful glance Shaeri, cheer.
With all my friendships and with soon,
sagar (2410) 2008-03-26 8:49
The mood you have presented here is wonderful!!! However the focus to the right of the frame has been a bit too soft. I dont know wheteher you did it intentionally to give it a lyrical feel. Otherwise, its a successful composition in terms of color and feel.
PS- Camera kinley?
Wandering_Dan (3449) 2008-03-26 16:01
Hi, Shaeri -
A nice peaceful shot. But I don't think the soft focus filter added anything, especially because it is unevenly distributed. I think that next fall, you should try getting the soft effect by PP rather than filter; you'll have more control.
A good idea, though!

Hi my friend,
what a beautiful feeling you brought in with this shot! the softness of the compo is so beautiful enhanced even more by the leafs on the ground and the soft and warm tones. A very eye-catching picture full of poetry, well composed and presented. Great job!
Thanks for sharing it.
Cretense (68695) 2008-03-27 4:52
What a fantastic, atmospheric and poetic photo! Great composition, amazing autumn colours and great use of the soft focus to create a fairy tale atmosphere. Congratulaitons!

Hi Shaeri, very good fall colours and I like the composition you have on this one with the wood bench as the centre piece. I'm not sure if I would have gone for a soft filter on a shot like this. I think I would use one of those on a more symmetrical shot. The soft approach works well here on the right, but it lost to some degree with the leaves of the trees on the left.
Clementi (52514) 2008-03-28 2:45
Ciao Shaeri ,
very nice framed this bench,
amazing soft tones of colors .
Floydian (30970) 2008-03-28 11:04
the soft focus filter gave you an extra touch to it, although i have the admit that for me the colors only would already lead to a soft and dreamy effect. Those colors are really stunning. The bench is inviting to sit on and enjoying the view...wonderful picture.
saylan-cb (12738) 2008-03-28 15:21
Very nice autumn colours.
Beautiful composition and good shot,well done.
Stepan (27210) 2008-03-29 0:36
So cute, so lovely... The light blur effect makes it "perfect"...
Lovely colors, lovely mood...
In a certain way, it's a classical post but you managed it reallry great, then...
Angshu (56676) 2008-03-29 22:12
You seem to have applied the partial softfilter here...Like the colours of autumn & your compo. with the lone bench slightly in a diagonal..well done with the colours & compo.

pboehringer (770) 2008-04-01 8:13
personally I'm not a fan of this type of filters, but everyone has a different taste and that is good. The typical autumnal colors give a strong view.
jmdias (59236) 2008-04-01 17:22
very poetic image. The background blured is like a dream. Fantastic colors. This pov is very nice too. The bench is very nice put, its sharpness is like reality against the mistic-natural background. TFS
marietom (34609) 2008-04-05 3:26
S'asseoir là, et admirer les couleurs des arbres, c'est superbe !
degani (2975) 2008-04-05 21:48
Wonderful picture, Shaeri.
With few simple objects you have created a great image, the composition, the colours, simply beautiful. Brava.
jafadabret (56501) 2008-04-06 0:37
Shaeri, c'est une photo d'une composition simple mais très efficace. J'aime les couleurs de l'automne. Le banc semble attendre la pause de promeneurs arrivés à l'automne de la vie, l'âge ou on prend le temps de s'arrêter pour respirer et pour contempler la beauté de ce qui nous entoure.
paura (47184) 2008-04-07 8:15
Beatiful composition here. Colors and lighting are great. The cenetr focus effect are also nice. Well done.
danyy (0) 2008-05-16 14:45
je m'arrête sur cette photo d'automne avec ses couleurs chaudes et une photo dans laquelle ce flouté rend bien le banc.
Les teintes jaunes apportent pas mla de lumière.
COSTANTINO (60621) 2008-05-25 0:31
