I loved the light in this photo. I used vignetting and a bloom to place more accent in places so that your eyes would be lead to the top right corner. Taken in Arkansas after a big rain!

The previous one was a bit too dark, IMO.
I like this one; wonderful atmosphere.
I can almost hear the river

Hi Linda,

I like the deep colours,your eyes do get led right into the scene beyond, this could be a little stream in Scotland. I have a subscription to the American Outdoor photographer magazine and I am constantly in awe with the landscapes in your national park areas, you talk about a trip to Scotland,I will need to get my skates on and get over there.

Hello Linda :)

So, I am in Your head so...haha :)

I adore the colours of autumn, such warm are :)
Very pretty and romantic composition .
Water looks very curiously.
Very showy realization.

With best wishes.

Hi Linda,
Wonderful!!! I love the light , the good compo with the stream leading from one side
to the back, the warm colors and the secret atmosphere of the place.
Well done and TFS

Beautiful composition with the light accent on the water stream. Do you have enough shots to compose a HDR?

i love the lighting in this. it is mysterious and beautiful.
you have composed the image nicely. the river carries you from left to right taking in the wonderful trees as it progresses.

Very nice Linda,
reminds me of an old oil painting

Nice Linda, an almost tunnel like effect of the trees joining over the stream. Love how the stream almost flows from one side of the photo to the other. Wonderful dappled light.


Well done Linda, but I like better than the light the colour hues: those browns and greens and yellows.
Also looks interesting the combination of transparencies and reflexes in the stream.
The composition is simple and correct, well done in PP to lead the eye to the top right corner, it works.
