Bonjour James.
Des couleurs automnales qui ont fait leur retour dans nos images de saison.
Une belle composition avec de belles couleurs naturelles qui mettent cette image en valeur.
Bon week-end.

Good Morning, James!

Wow, what a beautiful autumnal scene with such lovely colors ofthe leaves! I like the great contrast between the bright colored leaves and the green trees. The sharpness is crisp and POV couldn't be better.

Very well seen!

best regards,

Punchy colours, deep DOF and a well thought out POV. Nice tight pano in your trademark style.

Hello James
Beautiful Autumn colors with very nice composition.
very fine sharpness and exposure

Though its a tight crop, which in my opinion, u might have given a little room :)


Hello James,

Your vertical frame really assists in your control of this scene. It is so much more subtle than a notice which says 'walk this way' but you have, in fact, guided the gaze precisely through the shot by the style and the pov.
Wonderful, rich colours and sharply focussed details.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Hi James,
This is just fantastic!
The colorful golden-orange leaves spilled on the ground are indicating Autumn in its best!
Nice subdued lighting and excellent color saturation.
Great details on the foliage and steps!
Very sharp and neatly presented.
Best regards,

Hi James,
The colours of the fallen leaves are brilliant, the steps and low wall take you straight into the picture with great bg detail. TFS

Nice shot and place. Great photos and scene.
So nice colors.

Well presented.

Hi James

perfect sharpness and contrast.

Hi James,

beautiful autumnal colors.
I like your composition.
The image has great sharpness and details too.
Is it a pano stitched from several shots ?


What a great place this Botanic garden of Dublin!
Lovely details and colors!

We are heading into summer and you have autmn. Love the colours of the leaves and the lichen on the rocks. The vertical composition suits this shot and the path leads the eye nicely to the park benc in the distance.

Beautiful lighting control and very nice low POV with great DOF
The autumnal colors are well captured and the row of stones create amazing composition

TFS, Alireza

Hi Jimmy,
Very high quality and professional looking shot. The colours are so great here, very good idea with the vertical crop too. On top of that it all looks perfectly exposed and clear - Not a thing I'd change. Well done.

dear James,
a beautiful picture of your wonderful autumn scene,
colors of fallen leaves are very rich and still green leaves on branches are vividly contrasted with those in one view,
this stone pavement and wood make wonderful walking space.
thank you fro your excellent shot,
