Hi Folks,

An autumn season capture from well-known Koenigsalleé in the city of Duesseldorf.

Weather conditions on that day:

The sky was quite bad but still I was quite optimistic. I was lucky that sun gave its great glimpse after an hour or so. You won't believe I was so happy and tried to enjoy every moment of it, of course also by taking pictures too :)

This impact lasted for couple of days on me, therefore, I titled this shot as: "Auto(matic) Impact".

Hope you do keep the feelings for autumn as I do :)

best greetings



Information on Koenigsallee (Duesseldorf)

When it was built in 1804, the 'Koe', as it is affectionately known to locals, was situated in a slightly run-down area on the edge of the city. As Duesseldorf grew, the street became more central and things really took off after a face-lift at the start of the 20th century. An underground station was opened, the pavements were widened and the street lamps, kiosks and telephone boxes were restored. Nowadays the boulevard is Duesseldorf's no. 1 shopping street and has enhanced the city's reputation as being one of Europe's major fashion centres, but has also lent it a reputation for being somewhat snobbish.

Quelle magnificence, ces reflets sont extraordinaires.
Les arbres semblent se r'habiller à nouveau de leur parrure dorée.
Superbe perspective, avec au centre, un chemin de ciel. Douce luminosité.
Mes compliments pour ce moment partagé.
Amical bonsoir.

Hi Paras,

A beautiful capture of the fall leaves and reflections in the Koenigsalleé. The receding lines of the reflections and banks on both sides of the water create an interesting symmetry. Very sharp with good color saturation.

dear Paras,
always the reflection on the water looks so deep and tasteful than actual view,
autumn leaves on the water show us reversed sky and trees are more beautiful in this your shot,
more distance from actual world, more artistic image imagined,
thank you,

Boa tarde Paras
I like the perspective and the great reflexes. Good light and sharpness.
My regards
