Beautiful interplay of light and shadow - some beautiful foliage with very powerful color. The composition is excellent as well.

I really like the flowing lines and the smooth light.
Very lyrical.

What strikes me with this image is the painterly feel and the gentle flow from foreground to background produced by the transitions from shadow to light and back again.

I really love the way the light strikes the mountain, dark then light then dark then light again, followed by the misty look in the background. Really an above-average fall color shot.

Good showing on this one, Neil. Just look at that commenters avg! Two of your top three shots taken in the past month. That's impressive!

Just a bit too saturated for my tastes, but I love the the scenery and the mountains, Especially in the distance. The hints of colour there are perfect... 8

Very nice, looks like a quilt, nice detail in the BG

I love the balance of the cropping, but the trees look oversaturated and somewhat fake. Am sure that it was breathtaking to witness in the moment tho.

Great colors, love it how the flows of the foreground go into the hazy but still colorful hills in the background. The line from the right, that is lit by the sun and goes int the frame as a triangle brings the live to this photo. Nice work.

Pretty image Like the depth and color...

Superb. Colors are on point, the mountains in the background are on point and focus is a winner throughout. I'm really glad you shot at a high aperture. I would hate to lose those mountains. A solid 8.

This is great! It looks TOTALLY like a painting.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/01/2004 10:24:59 PM
While this shot lacks a traditional focal point in composition, I think this is one of those instances where you can know very well the guidelines needed to create a great photo, and then choose to ignore them because the shot speaks for itself. My top 5. Score 10.

Wow I almost spit out my supper when I saw this. Unreal.

it's nice to see originality in autumn colours, the misty background is very pretty. But the foreground is too dark I think. 6

Gasp! This is stunning! 8

the color is nice and the light is very nice - the waves of mountain pull this out of the ordinary
