Hi Folks,

An autumn season capture from well-known Königsalleé in the city of Duesseldorf. I like the mirror reflection of the bridge with autumn leaves covering the canal waters.

Weather conditions on that day:

The sky was quite bad but I was quite optimistic though. 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".

I think 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.

Hi Paras,

I like the symmetry and perspective in this. The diagonals provided by both shores frame the reflections of the receding treeline nicely. A wonderful fall shot, with excellent depth.


Bonsoir mon ami Paras,

Une capture pleine de charme, aux couleurs d'automne fantastiques.
Tous se mêle ici.
Un après midi, une heure exquise à comtempler les arbres renversés qui, comme j'aime à le dire souvent, se rhabillent avec leurs feuilles baignant dans les reflets.
Derrière les fenêtres de l'immeuble qui se mire dans l'eau, ils y a des personnes qui dorment, qui mangent qui rient, qui s'aiment aussi. D'autres qui se baladent sur le pont
C'est une image de rue très plaisante, atmosphère délicieuse.
Belle fin de semaine et je vous réitère mes voeux.

dear Paras,
I like this settled feeling of colors and air in late autumn,
not yellow, not orange, not red, but deep quiet brown is real taste of autumn tone,
a little cold, a little depressed, a little lonely ambience is actual essence of this autumn,
old french chansons fit this season very well,
thank you,

Hello Paras,

The sky may not have been pleasing but it has no impact on this shot, as the fine diagonal composition, the rich autumnal colours and the sharply focussed details paint a lovely picture, dispelling any thoughts of the sky.

All the best for the New Year,
Bev :-)

Hello Paras! A beautiful shot of that city! Great colors and reflections too! A well balanced composition and a fine result! Thanks!


Hello Paras, wow autumn lasts at least till mid-Nov in Dusseldorf as a great number of leaves are still attached to the branches as seen in your photo , here in my region , say , the second week of October is last call for viewing the fall colors , after that they are on the ground not in the trees, ha ha ! What a reflection btw , clarity of your image is excellent ! Sharp as a tack too ,good note , well done ,
