p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Aspen and fence in fall


I showed this exact same scene last summer when wildflowers bloomed in the field. I returned for fall color but was maybe 2 days late for peak.

I had to focus stack 2 images to get the fence rail in focus. I believe you folks preferred the summer composition from the other side of the fence and low to the ground featuring the flowers. But for this one, I thought the fence offered a good leading line.

Like your opinions.

+1 @ leading lines ... I dig 'em ... but this one seems to be leading me out of the frame rather than toward the subject.

Shooting from an orientation that leads you into the frame, or toward your specified subject is my typical preference. For me, the main subject here is the larger scale of the trees on the right. The fence leads me to the small trees on the left, but the scale pulls me back, albeit a bit of a tug-o-war.

Still a nice scene, and sometimes we just don't have a plethora of options, but I'm wanting to jump the fence and shoot from the other side or

Yep, the fence does not lead into the scene, just offers to break it up into sections. The other side was just dead grass and pointed towards a road which you can see in the left corner.

This was one of about three stands of aspen within 200 yards of each other. I showed one of the other stands 3-4 weeks back but it sort of flopped.

I got a lot of fall color this year, but doubt I composed any properly. I wanted to show them gradually and see if I got any of them right. It is always a surprise to me when I do.

Good lemonade depends on both the lemon and the recipe. We don't always have control over the crop, but we still make it the best we can ... drink up.

Exactly, fair color here, decent sky but really no possible composition that I can see. Maybe one of those partials and I am never going to see a partial.
