    Exclamation Fall colors .... ALREADY!

    Man, I know it has been cool in the Northwoods, but FALL COLORS, already?!?

    Guess so!

    I took this on 9/8/2009


    Along Highway 8, in Upper Central Wisconsin

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.

    Seriously? Wow, it's still mid 90s (F) here. Fall doesn't start for at least another month and a half!

    As usual, non-hdr is the best. Brings out more color and looks more realistic.

    Herearound, fall colors come no matter the temperature.

    Who are 'they' anyway? He posted one picture to show some autumn colors, more to document than to produce a 'work of art' I'd say.

    Upon opening the thread, I feared there'd be some seriously garish 'fall colors' (people in general rather than Don specifically like to exaggerate these) but was pleasantly surprised to see something only slightly altered.

    Here in the UK the trees are just starting to gain a bit of colour.
    Harvest just in as well.

    Color my world ...

    Well, it is late October ... and those colrs are about to drop into obscurity, so I took a quick jaunt through my town ... amd saw some pretty cool shades, so to speak.

    This one was kind of remarkable in intensity and drama ...

    Why is everything so overexposed? And comically oversaturated? (From Don - Peek's is better)

    Cool Well, that figures ...

    No HDR and they still complain ...

    Concerning the exposure level, what are YOU seeing, 'jekostas'? The histogram for exposure says you are soooooo wrong, it defies my understanding. It is "dead nuts" on the money! I am not even going to dignify this rather silly and incorrect criticism. In fact, there is no overexposure at all. The sky would be white if there were.

    As far as over saturation, this is the SONY Creative Style: "Autumn leaves" effect.

    If you do not care for it, that's fine, too. I specified the selection of the effect in the EXIF and you will just have to adapt YOUR thinking to accept it for what it is. It enhances the yellows, golds, oranges, reds and browns of the light spectrum. Sure, you can shoot your camera LOCKED in 'portrait' or 'standard' mode, forever, for all I care. Personally, I like the effect. The word "pop" doesn't come to mind ... it's more like an "explosion." Name:  wild acceptance.gif

    So, you trust your histograms over your eyes? Coming from you, Don, that's pretty surprising. Besides, no, the histograms for the second two shots show blown-out highlights, so I don't know what "histogram" you're reading.

    Edit: Sorry, make that the first three pictures all have blown out sections.
