Autumn Afterthoughts

It is our custom to save a few of our favorite fallen leaves each autumn and display them carefully in a place where they can be admired for many extra months without much risk of their being damaged.  Late fall and winter activities this year resulted in their being moved to one of my work tables in a separate area of the house.  As I was making room for a new session of negative scanning, they came to my attention again, and it seemed appropriate to make one final study of a couple of last year’s preserved treasures.  The larger one is from one of our sycamores and the smaller from a Bradford Pear.

    These are wonderful treasures of fall; what a great idea to linger over them a while longer.

  3. Nice images…but an even nicer idea/tradition.

    Thanks, man, busybusybusy. I’m getting behind in posting and commenting again as other projects clamber for higher priority, but I’m trying to make time to catch up. Yup, I’m fine. I like to be busy!

    Well done Gary. Do I see some nicely applied Color Efex Pro 4 here? :-)

  7. krikitarts says:

    Yup, and some single-image HDR ProEfex as well–both thanks to you! Thanks a lot for the “nicely-applied” compliment!
