Farewell Autumn by Meowgli Farewell Autumn by Meowgli
A few days back I spent an early morning wandering around woodland in thick mist searching for intimate details that would capture a sense of the atmosphere of the day and of the end of autumn.

While it may not be the most dramatic photograph I've ever taken I do rather enjoy the soft subtlety of this image... what do you think?

The image has been given a slightly cooler white balance to bring out the blue in the morning mist, adding another layer of colour contrast with the red ferns and yellow leaves.

More to come from this morning when I get time to edit them...

It's definitely subtle. Love the shallow DOF to bring those leaves out into the forefront and make them pop. I'm always afraid to experiment with DOF when shooting landscapes. This is quite inspiring. :)

I agree. There's a certain sense of peace in the softness and blur of the mist. I like the way you've enhanced the colours but it would be interesting to know just how much it differs from the original. Did it take a lot of editing to get this beautiful, milky-blue mist or was it pretty much there already?

it didn't take much editing actually, the blue came about pretty easily by dropping the temperature of the white balance slightly... other than that it was just a case of enhancing the colours and adding a little bit of contrast :)
