Long exposure after golden hour

I missed the golden hour and I thought a black white filter was the best option.

Is there such a thing as "Golden Hour" for B&W images?

Silver Hour? Platinum Hour?

Agree - But my intent was to capture early fall colors - but the backlight sun and wind did not make that easy. I got good images without the skyline. But if I include the clouds it became a problem - at least to my eye.

Nice image, Sridhar, but I struggle to see into the shadows. Sometimes this works well, but usually landscapes are worth "reading" in their entirety for the multiplicity of textures they offer the viewer.

However, it's your image, and your vision. Not for me to tell you what your style should be.

It was windy. So the leaves and branches were blurry. I thought by using shadows I could minimize them. I can try cropping the clouds out and bring more clarity into the image. Thanks as always.

We try to avoid movement blurring, but it can be OK, giving some suggestion of the conditins without ruining the image sometimes, IMHO.

Hi Sridhar, I enjoyed the play of contrast in your image. There is something which is making this image special. I do agree with Chris's comment for shadows though.

Eventhough you have not asked, taking this opportunity of creative exchange of thoughts. the highlights were bothering me. they still bother at the bottom of frame. am at work to invest more time for my quick take below...

if you do not connect, please ignore...

I appreciate your feedback - I like this crop. Perhaps I can go back and work on the images if I leave out the clouds.
