It IS a Sumac plant. Different from Poison Sumac, this one grows on small tree-like bushes and color changes are radical after first frost. Leaves generally fall off soon after their unnatural brillance flourishes. I used to live in Ohio and have a few shots like this.

This picture is awesome! The colors are great and the angle you chose makes it look at first glance like a piece of abstract art! Love iT!

Great job! I think it's funny that people thought you faked the color. Of course who would think that this sort of display could be natural. I cannot believe that anyone gave you scores under a 5. I am very proud of you.

Anyone have any clue what this plant is? One person told me its Sumac, but I'm not sure. I was very fortunate to see these colors, it was a truley amazing find. Thanks to everyone for all your great comments and generous scores. It was very exciting to rank this high. Amost made riboon! Wahoo!

So this are real colours?
AND you are using HP?
So it is possible to make great photo with HP camera?

Congratulations on your top 5 position :)

Good mix of colors, and well composed. Sharpened a little too much but still a good photo.
11/09/2004 08:55:15 PM
Great colors, one of my favorites

I'm guessing you adjusted the hues to get the bizarre look - doesn't look natural to me.


<i>Edit: </i> Thanks for the PM. Sorry about my assumption, but I've never seen a tree/bush that changes like this. I'm curious what kind it is and where it was found. It's very strange but pretty. I bumped your score up to an 8.

I like the color and "orderliness"

Elegant, striking and artful. I particularly like the abstract quality of this shot, which on closer inspection reveals itself as simply a plant. I've never been a great fan orf borders but this one definitely helps. This is a phot about the wondrous colour and pattern in nature. Well done. 9

Holy shamoley, technicolor display for sure.

OMG! What did you do with the colours??? Very nice effect although a bit unnatural. I'm very curious of your description. 9.

Sumak! A great plant for color. I like that yours are all in focus so we can see all the color blends in sharp focus. Very fine.

The frame is superb.
The colours are very beautifull although they hurt your eyes a bit.

Absolutely and amazingly colorful! Great capture!

This is crazy for sure... flashy shot. Would croped right side with trunk so other compozition stay more horzontal.

Incredible photo. So many colors. It looks like a rainbow. But let me tell you one thing: that isn´t Mother Nature´s palette, it´s Jehovah´s. Anyway, I like the photo and I give you 7 points.
