WHAT? JUST THE RED?

No seriously, I didn't expect this to do so well (and I wouldn't show the original to anyone except the SC, I hoped fall in Germany was only half as beautiful as this shot promises). Thanks for the load of comments, peeps.

Congratulations!! The best shot in this challenge, fantastic on every level.

10/29/2007 10:36:21 AM
Whoa!!!! THIS IS AWESOME!!! 7.5 and red is pretty amazing! That is definitely a blue-ribbon score, and certainly worthy of a blue ribbon. But congratulations on Red! It's one of the prettiest autumn scenes I've seen!

Stunning composition. Especially like the way the tree trunks on the right line up in a dark vertical mass, echoed and set off by the dark figure. (Would have been a 10 had I voted in this one).

This is my top pick. I love the leading lines and the fall colors. You positioned you subject in a perfect place. Very well done technically while meeting the challenge. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Glorious colors and shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/27/2007 10:57:53 PM
This works well in this challeng and I think it should do well. I like the contrast and the tones. You are drawn down the road with your subject. I would offer one thing for you to consider and that would be, instead of your subject standing facing you I feel that they should be in the act of walking down the road. It would hold up better in my opinion and give the actual flow to the shot. The placement of your subject is fine and the entire image is "TAC" sharp (f/11?) and overall this is very pleasing to the eye. Nice work.

fabulous colors! great shot for the challenge

This looks like Dr. Achoo - if not, take that as a huge compliment. I can't decide if I like the rainbow umbrella against the strong yellow colors in the photo. It is a very strong contrast / contradiction. Regardless of "like" or "don't like" this is a very striking photo.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/26/2007 07:48:07 PM
This is exceptionally nice. I only wish the color on the leaves were a little purer... They seem vaguely "greenish", as if cyan saturation is a tad too high.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/26/2007 06:17:33 PM
Very nice. I was thinking of doing a shot similar to this, but didn't get time. 9

10/25/2007 10:41:32 PM
The Best!!! Love the focal point,the corridor of fallen leaves, the hugeness of the trees and distance.. 11 from me..
Fabulous!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2007 10:34:27 PM
Very nicely done. I like the patterns, and the composition leads me from the upper right corner down to the umbrella. A fave.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/25/2007 03:04:37 PM
I now want an umbrella like this :-) Love the minimalistic feel of this shot. Great job!

  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/22/2007 05:40:30 AM
Wow, its a stunning image, in perfect harmony and a flow of its own which just sucks in the eyes. The lone person with a rainbow umbrella is so well fitting for this challenge and also provides a nice variant to the colors of dried leaves. 10 for sure

Simple, and wonderfully captured. I like the placement of the person and ubrella as well. The rainbow colors really compliment the yellow of the leaves. Eight.

10/22/2007 12:49:56 AM
The golden colors of the fall leaves really make the rainbow pop right out! Nicely photographed.
