Already most of the trees in this picture are bare. Mike

Very pretty capture, Mike! Beautiful colours in the sky and the lake (river?) as well as the foliage.

This has a very strange feel to it. Not sure what it is but it just feels different. It's a lovely image though. :thumbup:

I have to agree with Iggy here. i like this shot but the colours of the sky and water have a strange feel to them. To my eye some highlight tones may have been clipped to the point of not being able to save them through burning. Am I offbase mbrager?

Looking back at the original, the sky highlights towards the left side particularly are blown out. I think I couldn't decide whether to meter on the sky or the foliage, but choosing the foliage left a hole in the sky. I tried processing using a gradient filter and burning but you see the results. Thanks for the comments. It's the Glenmore Reservoir. Mike

I wonder if that strange feel is ..... winter is coming soon.
