Color Me Gone
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|In a last fling before winter and death, colorful autumn foliage bursts from the base of an old pine stump along the Roaring Creek Trail in the upper Poudre River Canyon of northern Colorado.|
Roaring Creek tumbles off of Green Ridge and descends to the Poudre River in a series of lovely cascades and shady glens. Its sheltered situation creates a microclimate that nurtures an unusually wide variety of herbs and shrubs nestled among glacial boulders beneath canopies of aspen and pine. It is a prime location for nature photography.
Thanks in advance for any comments and critiques.
Update: Upon posting this image, I see that the combination of downsampling and jpeg compression is not being kind to the slender stems and grasses. I was going to repost it, but I was able to achieve only moderate improvement in the jagged edges by using Adobe bicubic downsampling in place of the antialiased downsampling of Corel PhotoPaint7. I will post a workshop to show the difference.

Nice compo, colours and framing. I especially like those colourful leaves from the grass...

Great color and composition I am a neophyte to photography but regardless of my experience this photo would be my favorite if I was the capturer. I'm thankful that you elected to share this with us.
