Challenge: Soft Focus III (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon PowerShot S3 IS
Location: Mont Tremblant, QC
Date: Sep 22, 2007
Aperture: f/3.5
ISO: 80
Shutter: 1/50
Galleries: Landscape, Nature
Date Uploaded: Sep 25, 2007

From a recent trip to Mont Tremblant about an hour north of Montreal. We had beautiful, bright sunny weather for the whole week, and then a bit of rain and mist on our last day. We were about 10 days early for the peak colours, but it was still very nice.

post-processing:

Cropped, re-sized, unsharp mask, levels, saturation. The soft focus was achieved by adding Gaussian Blur (5.0) and then fade (normal).

post-challenge:

Thanks for the votes and the comments and top 20 finish. I appreciate the suggestions to crop a little tighter. Here is a 16:9 crop that seems more pleasing with less negative space.

Really beautiful fall colors. I wish the background hill had similar foliage rather than the two strips.

did you try cropping top part of the mist? maybe even half of it? from my point of view, top half of the sky does not add anythig and does not fit compositionally. otherwise, this meets challenge very well and I like it.

Beautiful! A bit too much space at top but that is my only nitpick.
