Autumn In The Landscape

Jill Rahn's picture
While it might seem odd to have fall colors in late winter, we thought we’d take advantage of the crop of image ops available when the contest began (those luscious fall hues) and to have a bit of color to fight off the winter blahs right now. In any case, readers sent in a host of images from all around the country showcasing the fantastic colors and richness of that very special season. Editing from all the photos received was tough, but we found numerous images that we hope that for you, like for us, was a reminder that seasons do change and that gray and cold (at least here in the Northeast) is not how it always is outside. Please note that while we did not limit the post-processing allowed on these images we tended to choose those where processing enhanced the image and did not overwhelm it.

Morning Fog

The glow from the fog and warmth of the morning sun brought a heightened sense of presence in this photo by Jan Wolyniak. She made the photo with a Canon PowerShot SX130 with an exposure of f/3.4 at 1/160 sec.

Rocks And Reflections

The inference of autumn without even seeing a tree is what makes this photo so intriguing. Mary Nemeth made this photo with a Nikon D200 and a Nikkor 18-200mm lens in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Fallen Leaf

The color and design evident in this close-up shot is enhanced by the pale colors of fall. Suzan Charnock made this photo with a Nikon D300 and an AF Nikkor 24-85mm lens with an exposure of f/4 at 1/180 sec.

Connecticut Countryside

Jack Lagomarsino made this elegant photo of an ordered and equally elegant countryside with a Nikon D300 and a Nikkor 18-200mm VR lens with an exposure of f/8 at 1/320 sec at ISO 400. A polarizing filter aided in the exposure.

Leaves In A Pond

Filled with texture and forms, this photo of an autumn pond projects the spirit of the Japanese Garden in which it was made. Ann Lansing made this photo with an Olympus E-3 and a Zuiko 12-60mm lens; exposure was f/18 at 1/8 sec.

After The Rain

One of the most beautiful autumn drives is on Virginia’s Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park. Bruce Evartt made us want to make sure to hop in the car next fall with this photo made with a Canon EOS 30D and an exposure of f/3.6 at 1/60 sec at ISO 100.

Aerial View

David Margolis offers us this aerial view of the Kensico Reservoir in New York’s Westchester County. We especially liked the lone car on the causeway. Exposure with a Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III at ISO 400 was f/8 at 1/1250 sec.

Cottonwood Autumn

Harvey Morgan II wrote us that this is one from a series at this spot made each season of the year. We think he nailed the autumn shot. Exposure with a Canon EOS 20D and a Tamron 18-200mm lens atop a Bogen monopod was f/8 at 1/160 sec at ISO 400.

HDR Autumn

The vivid colors, detail in shadows, and wide tonal range of this photo of a Japanese maple in Portland’s Japanese Garden was captured by Gary Goatcher using a +/- 1 EV bracket HDR process. Exposure was with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II and a 16mm lens.

Calgary Countryside

Fog and fall are a great combo, one captured to great effect by Stephen Lacasse using a Sony Alpha 700 and a Sigma 18-50mm lens with an exposure of f/7.1 at 1/125 sec.

Out For A Walk

Irwin H. Segel used Topaz Simplify to decrease detail in the leaves and create a painterly look on this fall scene. Original image was made with a Nikon D300 and a 16-85mm VR lens.

Indiana Autumn

Originally photographed using Fujichrome Velvia, Gary W. Potts scanned the image with a Nikon Coolscan 4000 and then used the “old masters” effect in Alien Skin’s Snap Art software.

Autumn Stream

Bob Wells made this 1/15 sec exposure to catch the flow of water, and got the glow
of color of the trees in the rushing stream in the bargain. He worked with a Canon EOS-1D Mark II and a Sigma 17-35mm lens.

Fall Hike

Julie A. Christiansen made this inviting image of a fall trail with a Nikon D300 and an exposure of f/6.3 at 1/125 sec.
© Julie A. Christiansen

Vivid Colors

Sometimes a great fall shot means filling the frame with color and pattern and leaving the rest to the viewer’s eye. Peter S. Storozuk made this photo with a Nikon COOLPIX L18 with an exposure of f/2.8 at 1/140 sec.

Picture This! – Our Next Assignment
City At Night

Our next Picture This! assignment is “City at Night.” The excitement, color, and patterns of a city at night make for great photographic subjects. Working handheld or using a tripod, we’re looking for scenes that depict the sometimes romantic, sometimes chaotic urban landscape. Use architecture, neon, or even tail lights streaking down streets to create how you see the city around you. This photo on New York’s 42nd Street was made with a Canon EOS 5D and a Sigma 8mm f/3.5 EX DG lens with an exposure of f/4.5 at 1/13 sec at ISO 400.
