    October 2017 - Seasonal...

    OK - as its a week in and no-one else has started it, I hope no-one minds me taking the initiative.

    The idea of Fall was mentioned in the September theme thread, however ensuring that this covers everyone worldwide, why not have "Seasonal" - so any picture taken this month covering the season where you are.

    Please can I ask that you post what season (if its not obvious) applies to your picture and where you are from.


    If anyone else wants to start these threads off please do.

    Basic rules as listed before

    (so far):



    This is not a competition, it's purely for fun
    All photos should be your own and be taken within the month of the chosen theme
    You can post as many photos as you wish
    Comments on submitted photos are welcome
    Please include the exif details (these may be helpful to other members)
    Please use a Canon camera for your shots
    The chosen theme, should be as inclusive as possible

    Let the fun begin

    As mentioned before, I would also ask that people taking part try to add a suggestion for next months subject and those agreeing say so or add other suggestions... that way we can keep it going with subjects we all fancy a bash at.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for taking the initiative, Andy - I can't imagine that anyone would ever object.
    So let's get it started - my pyracantha berries in full autumnal splendour:

    Exif is visible on Flickr, but to save you clicking through: EOS 7D with 24-105. 1/200 75mm f/5.6 ISO200

    Happy for comments, please. I debated with myself about leaving those diseased leaves in, or whether to do some judicious pruning. In the end I thought they showed nature in reality and gave an extra focus of interest as a mass of berries just gets a bit bland. I'm sure some of you will disagree...

        Autumn - in the UK.

        I have had my 5D mk4 for less than a week, and although I've been using EOS cameras since 1991, there is definitely a learning curve with this upgrade from my 6D! I am not entirely happy with this shot -but then I'm not entirely happy with any of the shots I took today - but I'll post this one anyway.

              Some superb images so far, I am really impressed with you guys....


              And thanks to Andy for posting this months friendly, I was hoping if I left it someone else would take up the mantle and post one, as I felt we should all take part in posting topics... And it is working

                  Some good pictures turning up for this, going to take some thought and time to match these.

                          Apart from the 'Ophelia Sun' the light was dull as ditchwater yesterday, leading to a rather flat autumnal view. And no, I'm not going to remove all those tree protectors in pp...

                              Alex, Re your Berries, you do need something where those leaves are to balance the image and break up the berries, if you removed them I feel you would lose something, if you feel they need to go, have you any leaves to replace them with? they also give a sense of depth and perspective to those berries behind them and thus the image if that makes sense.

                              Have you edited the Fungi one as it has dissapeared, if you have you need to repost the updated link to it.



                              DAllan, yep it is showing, welcome to the forum, I love the way the road in the distance pulls the eye in.
