View Full Version : Shades of Autumn
As I was on a slow shutter speed for shooting a waterfall, and it was getting dark, I left the settings similar due to lack of light.
D90 - 18-105mm lens
1. f/4.2, 1/3sec, iso160
2. f/4.5, 1/6sec, iso200
3. f/4.8, 1/3sec, iso200

I love all of the colors, Kaye, but I am particularly impressed with your steady hands at such a slow shutter speed. Is there something special that you are doing to hold still or is it just a gift you have?
Thanks for viewing these Eddie and for your comment.
As far as staying steady, all I do is hold my breath and not rush the shot. Normally I get steadier as the day goes on after taking numerous shots.
I find it much easier to be steady with the D90 with the extra weight than with my Olympus.

Great set Kaye. I really like them all but my favorite is #1. You have a leading line in a full array of Autumn colours that takes the eyes right up to an almost bare tree. great colour in all. I also have to agree with Eddie. You steadiness is fantastic for the slower shutter speeds.
Many thanks for your kind comment John. I feel the shots are a little too dark as it was late, but I couldn't resist the rich colours as the leaves were wet/damp.
There were some I took at awkward angles that were rather blurred :) :(

Kaye, these are so pretty! I really like the composition of the first, but all 3 are well done. You and those steady hands!
Thanks you so much Marianne.

Beautiful series of shots Kaye. I miss autumn colours. You know that I brought home some maple leafs of the autumn from Canada. I put them in a photo frame. But they all are turned brown now, hehe.
I really appreciate your comment thank you Tenny.
It's funny, but I am sure my shots are darker in the larger Flickr uploads than in my thumbnails. I can especially notice this in No. 2 with the white fungus. I think I prefer them in the thumbnails direct from my PC.
With the maple leaves you brought home from Canada.... this was a good idea, but I am wondering if there is a spray sort of preservative that you can use to hold the colour in the dead leaves?
Then I could post you some http://www.freesmileys.org/emoticons/emoticon-object-027.gif (http://www.freesmileys.org/emoticons.php)
