Maple Abstract

THANK YOU for your kind words about "The Icon" making the Spotlight. What is interesting is that if that tree wasn't such an icon that every photographer shoots, I would not have felt motivated to push the envelope. The learning that I would take away from this is, don't avoid shooting the icons; use them as a springboard for tapping into your creativity.

NIKON D700 1/250 second F/8.0 ISO 400 200 mm (35mm equiv.)

A beautiful image, the magnificent fall colours all appear almost ground up here
to become a magical dust. Beautiful.

I really like your latest images jack. I looked back on some and saw the B&W and sepia. Those are just as awesome.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

An eye-catching abstract with great colors. It seems that my eyes "lock" on a particular area as something recognizable until something else is spotted elsewhere within the same frame.
