Autumn colors - what are your thoughts?
The fall / autumn is in full swing and I finally got some time to jump right into it. I spend whole day on driving and shooting around one of my nearest mountain ranges. I got one photo for you today, as I find your critiques very informative and inspiring. I'm happy to hear your thoughts on this one!
It was a foggy morning with no direct sunlight. I found this small vignette of landscape at one place, right after sunrise. I wanted to leave that morning feeling by leaving sky blue, but at the same time (to add more contrast) I saturated and warmed leaves' color. I've also added the contrast to the mist closest to the foreground, to make it more white and prominent. I left the most far ground little greyish and blueish (to convey perspective better).
Compositionally, I chose to have the two trees in (almost) symmetrical distance from the center. Also, there are some lines pointing toward the center of the frame, and one strong diagonal across the whole frame. I feel like a right top corner is little empty, providing slight unbalance to the frame, but I really have no idea how to overcome this, except of pasting in a Superman. ;)
On the funny side, I feel like this shot is little in a Bob Ross style. ;D What do you think? Did I manage to do the justice to the early autumn morning in the forest? What would you do different, if any?
