Nice fall shot, I particularly like the path covered in dead leaves leading through the image. The upper part is slightly overexposed and in my opinion a tripod is a must at this shutter speed.

Wonderful colors and fine detail John. I hope that you will share photos with us through the seasons of this lovely setting. It is beautiful and serene. The light in the trees covered by colored leaves is a delight, especially in contrast with the reddish leaves already on the ground. Fine work again. You make a habit of it... ;-)

Very nice. I like the soft colors of this photo. The focus is really sharp. It's good to see that in the trees the leaves are yellow and on the ground they are red and they create a carpet all along the way.

Très joli sous-bois tapissé de feuilles mortes dont la couleur contraste avec celles qui sont encore dans les arbres. Belle lumière

The curve of red path leads the eye around this beautiful picture. This time for the autumnal colors there is a blue sky and this is an addiction. I am waiting to see the forest from the same pov with snow.

Apart from the magic colors I like the lighting management you achieved here - all elements of the picture are properly exposed.
well done

What a beautiful forest! I like the air between the trees, the light and the colours.
This is an excellent autumn view. Very well presented here with excellent clarity, details and textures.

This is good work!

I am your regular favorite John. There are three wonderful and attractive highlights about your photo of why I like it. You could see three layers here;the ligh and windy green on the top branches, the deeper shade of green and the dark red of dead leaves on the trail, of the view of autumn in the woods. Lovely forest scene John.Thank you.

Superb colour & sharpness. The 'c' shaped walking track adds perspective & depth. Good use of repetition & perfectly lit.

It´s an adorable image! Colors are so soft and with lots of "life".
Great capture from that imaginarium place. Thanks for that John.

Hi John, another nice forest shot from you, the walking path traces a nice perspective, its colors due to the leaves is superb, overal exposure is very good and produces a superb result.

Très beau cliché!
Bien cadré et surtout trés belles couleurs de l'automne grâce à la luminosité qui apporte un plus au jeu des couleurs!
Well done John!

Hij is prachtig John,
Wat kan ik meer zeggen. De foto is uitstekend genomen de kleuren en het licht zijn prachtig. Eigenlijk heb ik geen kritiek. Erg goed werk John

Nice colors, contrast and perspective.

Wat een kleur, licht, scherpte en diepte in deze foto John, prachtige herfst foto ! Uitstekende kwaliteit !

There's a lot of seasonal shots around at the moment, and this is another nice. Well handled light, giving a satisfying rendering of the colours.

Une vue automnale très bien réalisée techniquement et artistiquement.
Les feuilles jonchant le sol valorisent la composition.
Les couleurs pastel et les détails sont un réel plaisir pour les yeux.
Une très belle réussite John.
Merci, pour le partage.

Good composed autumn view, well exposed and framed.

Herfst is een mooi jaargetijde en dat is goed te zien bij deze foto. Een uitgebreide verzameling kleuren met als toetje de lichtval. Het pad is ook goed in beeld gebracht.
Nodigt uit om er te wandelen, "helaas" woon ik een flink eind uit de buurt.

Je suis de retour depuis hier 22h après avoir roulé 1800 kms... Niet veel tijd pour commenter mais ici, je vois encore une merveilleuse photo de bois avec encore des belles couleurs. Bravo, John!

Het wordt al een beetje dunner in het bos, minder bladeren en straks helemaal kaal.
Het kan nog net en het is dan inderdaad een mooie bos-foto geworden. Voor november een prachtig licht en vooral het bladerdek, dit keer op de grond is erg mooi, John.

Another one of your signature shots, John. Simple and plain nature presented at the very best. I really enjoy the autumn color pallette, and the way in which the light and shadows are managed. Very good.

The patchiness of light in the woods is nicely rendered here. What is more and quite uncommon for a wood picture is the feeling of space you preserved here. The eye is not locked up by the usual maze of vegetation that limits perspective in the woods.

Hi John, another great forest shot from you. Here I like very much the ground with all the brown leaves which just look fantastic. Excellent colors and details there. Your composition is very good with some room in the front and a good look into the forest. Well done.

Yeah, I like the colors and leaves texture ! Good automnal shot !

I very much love autumn, it is possible to tell this my favourite season. But what she at all different. Your bright, light, easy, transparent. Completely air. Very beautiful paints. Well done

I could guess that it is your before I saw your neme, John. A very simple, but so well captured landscape shot. I like the red carpet of leaves on the ground and the contrast that it makes with the bright greens. Wonderful shot.

The place looks so tranquil and peaceful John! You made a wise decision of taking the pic in the morning. I love the effect of the lights on the trees and leaves. Very very nice! rgds.

very nice pic here, I like the autumn leaves here, very nice ground and the colours are wonderful

Great and colorful scene John, I like this kind of picture with beautiful day light throught the threes, beautiful nature, well done.

Wow, wonderful lighting John. This is truly an enchanted forest. The lines of trees move us perfectly and give great depth. The lighting has strong feel of lightness and airiness. It's so soft and magical on the colors of the leaves. The ground gives an excellent contrast to the leaves on the trees. Fantastic shot.

Oh - just simply beautiful - You found a spot I been looking for here this autumn, but somehow its seems difficult for me. I like the fresh green colours even at this time of year - and the amazing light.
Thanks John for the fine View.

This one is a postcard, John; so beautiful with excellent colours and contrast, great depth and perspective, a really lovely November day photo!

Hi John,

A good POV of the path covered with fallen leaves and of the trees, the photo has a good composition, DOF and nice colors. Have a nice day.


Good morning John,
An immaculate light and clearity, no backlight-effect, on a beautiful forest scenery. Autumn in best multi-tones, depth through the trees is most notable.
Pleasent to look at.
Enjoy a nice weekend,
