Great entry but a bit shallower DoF would have been preferred IMHO. As it is, the BG is a little distracting.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

Nice work Dan,
The tree trunks form a perfect X, and being framed by the coloful leaves makes it stand out. Well done!

Love the colors and high contrast. DoF works, contrast is high enough to keep the trees at attention.

Nice shot,
Chad

Wow, thanks Patty, Chad and Mark! I'm getting some nice feedback for this assignment. I went back and did some additional PP to make the colors more vibrant. I always worry that I'm overdoing it.

Hey Dan, great minds think alike! I found the exact same thing last weekend -- only I was too slow to get mine in...*sigh*. I really like the color of the leaves in the background. I also like the texture of the bark.

Good luck!

Thanks so much Michelle! I appreciate the compliment. This is the first assignment I've done all summer so I can't say anything about procrastination.
