Over night temperatures have been dropping in the Southern Highlands. I was down in Canberra last week and walking beside the lake. It is a popular spot for walking and bike riding.
The trees lining the lake were just starting to show autumn colour. The tower in the background is a telecommunications tower and popular tourist stop. Everything is very symmetrical but it is our capital city!

Depth and perspective are wonderful.
You chose an excellent angle, the long line of the quay gives a very well image and leads us very far in background.
Very well done, TFS.

The seasons also on the other side of the Earth changes. the clearness of the quay in diagonal armature very a great depth of the image. The light is excellent. The reflected quay and the sky give glare to the photograph. Beautiful composition and realization of quality.
Have a nice day

Canberra eh, did you visit the National Gallery to see the Masters. We both want to get there before the exhibition finishes. I though I'd wait until Autumn is in full swing to try and get the rustic colours, everything around my part of town is native so green all year.
Good choice of perspective, the diminishing line works well. Composition also sits well, I like the full frame on the left and the way you've opened up the view to the right.
It's always difficult to get leaves looking natural and not appearing to be over sharpened, you've done well.
I'll talk to the mouth today and work out a plan. Graham seems to be booked out for the next couple of months

I love this perspective with deep diagonal to provide streetlights.
Beautiful walk along the water and wonderful light and natural colors.

Hi Ian, isnt this such a lovely time of year, especially in the Southern Highlands. The perspective and reflections are beautiful especially in combination. Excellent light control and depth of field. TFS and I wish you a lovely week, Lisa
