Photographer's Note

I have tried to capture the "feeling" and "emotion" of this autumnal scene. I envisioned it in black and white, because it seemed the strong colors were overshadowing the sensation of late afternoon light.

After looking at the image, I wanted to soften it to create some light blooms (on film halation) effects, and reduce the yellow and only promote the less saturated color values.

I used a 200mm lens to compress the sense of perspective. The Gimp provided cropping, scaling and finally reduced saturation and shift of color to look more like a heavily toned black and white.
