Bonjour John,
ce que tu as voulu rendre ici est parfaitement réussi, ces rayons de soleil qui percent ce qu'il reste de feuillage sur les arbres.
Le cacher derrière un arbre est évidemment judicieux.
Magnifique tapis d'automne bien coloré au sol, le tout sous une bonne exposition.
Amitiés.
Daniel.

Dag John, Dit is echt een magische foto! Heel mooi hoe de zonnestralen het hun weg vinden tussen de bomen en een mooi licht werpen over het rode blader tapijt. Er gaat een zeer feeërieke sfeer uit van deze foto, misschien wonen er elfjes in het Ursel bos! Schitterend werk! Sabine

Goeie morgen John

mooie ochtendopname, vol van herfstkleur en stralend zonlicht. Het beetje groen dat overblijft geeft een bijzonder contrast aan het bruine bladerdek, goed samenspel van licht en schaduw.
Mooie dag verder

Hi John,

Your nature shots are a pleasure to watch

your camera control is a mastership;

Bonjour John
Très belle composition avec les rayons du soleil qui filtre entre les arbres et le tapis de feuilles rouges apporte un plus à l'ensemble.
Bravo et amicalement

een beeld dat zo uit een sprookje kan komen. Terug een goeie scherpe en prachtige (originele) herfstkleuren.

groeten,

Luc.

Hi John
This is a fabulous shot. The light is amazing trought these
trees and your picture is well exposed. Well done
Regards
Quentin

Goeiendag, John. Nog een wondermooie foto met een fantastische belichting. Het contrast tussen de bladeren op de grond en de groene bladeren op de bomen werkt heel goed. De zonnestralen creëren hier een mysterieuze die mij heel goed bevalt.

Bonjour John,
Superbe scène d'automne. Le soleil filtrant à travers les arbres donne une jolie teinte rouge au sol. J'aime beaucoup cet atmosphère.
Merci de nous faire partager.
Amicalement

John, het is ondertussen bijna onmogelijk geworden om de eerste te zijn om jouw foto's te quoteren. Het is ook niet moeilijk; ze zijn dan ook goed. Weer een prachtige opname tegenlicht (!) met die mysterieuze zonnestralen door het bladerdak. Heel mooi gedaan!

Hello John, splendid autumnal scene, where the sun comes to distribute its ray, through trees, with parsimony, to revive the colors of the autumn and to offer this beautiful scene in shades and light to us. Splendid control of the exposure, congrtulation.

Great raylight! I very like lighting in here!
Regards

great lighting through the trees, very good timing and the contrasts are great

Hi John, Another impressive shot of the beautiful scene with well selected angle to take the sunrays. The covers on the ground are colorful. You have captured with nice details and good texture. A well composed picture with depth and sharpness.

Goedenavond John,
Mooi gezicht hoe de zonnestralen vanachter de boom tevoorschijn komen, terwijl de zon zelf achter de stam zit. Mooie kleuren bovendien. Goed werk.
Groeten,

Hi John
A brautiful contrast. I particularly like the deep redish colour in the ground and the sunlight filtering through the trees.
Well done

Hi John,
You captured so well the light in a fine and splendid way. Very good shot in the first sun rays of the morning. Good luminosity, colors and sharpness. Excelent work and a simple resulting and effective composition.

Hi John. Wow you just keep out-doing yourself. What a burst of light and interplay with the mist. To me it looks more like smoke or fog than mist. Excellent shot John!!

Dag John,
Het is weer een prachtige capture van de herfstlijke atmosfeer.Het was zeker niet makkelijk met het tegenlicht maar het result is prachtig.

Bonjour John,
Un reste de soleil sur le seuil de la brume, - Une glu chaude encore à la pente des nues - Et l'automne vous prend dans ses pattes-pelues, - Feuilles couleur de sang, de sang couleur de plumes.
Félicitations pour ces très belles photos publiées, c'est du grand Art !
Amitiés.

Hallo John
Al een paar keer bekeken en vergeleken, ik heb ze beiden trouwens tegelijkertijd open op screen, deze is een stuk helderder doortekent, ook in de zonnestralen die door de bomen priemen, de andere had dan zijn compositie mee door het pad en framing van de boom langszij, toch geeft de helderheid van deze mij nog meer plezier om naar te kijken. Even vergelijken mag toch hé ?
(mijn muis verdwijnt nog altijd op de meest onverwachtte momenten)

Hi John
Je me suis essayé à faire ce genre de photo en sous-bois avec les rayons du soleil. J'ai peur de les poster tant les tiennes sont meilleures
Bravo

Hi John
Dramatic twilight in this photo.
I like the contrast beteen the green leaves and the fallen leaves. I would have liked to see the twilight even more saturated in this photo ... but I guess it must be due to the limitations of the camera and the scene.
very nice mood being captured in this photo indeed
thanks for brightening up my day

Hi John,
A classic view of the woods in autumn with wonderful filtered light peeking through. I like the spacing of the trees here to give an open feel to part of the forest. The strewn leaves very much enhance. First rate work.

Kind of another variation of the shots from this place.
This ine also presents a divine light stray setting, the strong colours of the fallen leaves. Very effectful and well disposed compo John

Soft in all the light and the brown carpet is so beautiful, a peaceful place, a peaceful picture....

Those red leaves make a wonderful carpet in this photo. The filtered sunlight was very well captured.

Hola John.
Love the way we see the sun rays coming through the trees and giving shadows and light on the leaves in the ground. Beautiful autumn scene. Great composition.
Well done and TFS.

Stunning and effective use of these light beams, John! The exposure is just right to capture details in both lights and shadows. The sun is well placed to emanate from a strong position. Mostly, this photo has a lot of very fine mood and atmosphere!

Hello John, you have captured some incredible light here. The sun is perfectly placed in the top right and the rays of sunlight spread across the frame. I love the rich red of the leaves where the light hits the forest floor. A very beautiful and gentle picture.

Goedemorgen John, wat een prachtig beeld is dit. De radiale zonnestralen zijn werkelijk magisch en laten de herfsttinten van dit bos zeer mooi tot hun recht komen. Het laag aangelichte rode bladertapijt is oogstrelend. Xcellent werk.
Een goede week toegewenst uit een een halfduister Rotterdam bij 5 graden.

I don't know how often I tried to take a picture with this kind of light. I never was successful. Seeing you pic I guess that it is possible and I will keep trying it.

Another masterpiece picture from within the woods, John.
Red leaves carpet, and the sun-rays coming through the trees are exceptionally beautiful on the composition.
Green and red with a touch of orange color, all pleasently shown.
