Autumn colours

Just messing with a macro lens and then just messing with Photoshop and OnOne – can’t help myself :-).  I think I prefer the original version, as nature intended:

Finally, from close-up to 24mm wide-angle – the evening light along the lanes towards Fawcett Hill:More autumnal colours

    First and last gets the thumbs up 🙂
    Out walking this morning. The last bit of colour on a bright day like this is glorious, isn’t it?

      Thanks Jo – that is significant, both of those are straight from the camera – I should stop dabbling 🙂 I agree, the late afternoon is light is fantastic especially just before the sun sets.

    A little addicted to the OnOne, Robin? 😉 They all look great. I’m a bit addicted to my new Topaz plugins at the moment, so I’m one to talk.

    • northumbrianlight · November 25, 2013

      Thanks Julie – yup, you’ve noticed the addiction – time I shaped up and moved on. Think I might head on over to Topaz 🙂

      • LaVagabonde · November 25, 2013

        I love Topaz. Great quality and I can use it with iPhoto and don’t need to buy Photoshop. If you’re going to buy a la carte- they have a 50% off sale every month on one of their plug in sets, so you might want to wait until the ones you want are on sale.

        Many thanks for that – I will do you as you suggest – love new toys 🙂

    I’m with Jo – first and last for me! Not that I always stick to what the camera produced!!!!

    • northumbrianlight · November 25, 2013

      Thanks Sue – ‘as nature intended’ seems to be winning the popular vote 🙂

      Remarkably similar Paddy – just like a photo club outing 🙂

    fall has been my favourite season since my childhood… wonderful pix! My very best & have a sunny day like here! 🙂

    • northumbrianlight · November 26, 2013

      Thanks Mélanie – you too – dull and ‘orrible here today 😦

    Wonderful, and I love the warm light in that last shot….beautiful beech lined road.

    The last image in this post… Lovely! I do like trees… you know. 😉

    • northumbrianlight · November 28, 2013

      I know – thanks to you I am seeing them in a new light.

      • Malin H · November 28, 2013

        Fantastic to read that I’m the reason you seeing them in a new light. Trees have so much to tell… I always listen to them. (Sounds weird… I know).
