Diane Schuller from Hythe, Canada

Is this really what it's like there right now? We've had winter since the week before Halloween. It's hit 20 and 25 below already and we just had another blizzard yesterday. This is gorgeous!

6 Dec 2009 1:07am

@Diane Schuller: No; most of this is gone. There is still some vivid color to be found, but after hard freezes the past two nights, I think that that is about to be over.

ghetu from Mumbai, India

how did you get this colour? was there any exposure compensation? is it processing?

7 Dec 2009 6:08pm

@ghetu: The exposure compensation was -1/3. I applied the Tonal Contrast filter in Nik's Color Efex Pro. Most of the vivid color was in the leaves.

Wow! Amazing detail and rich colour! Love it
