September Light by ladyrapid September Light by ladyrapid
Was out walking the other day in the beautiful autumn weather when I saw this glimmer through the trees.
Everything about autumn is great I think, the air is thin anc clean, the sun warms nicely and the atmosphere in the nature is just awesome.

I love how the light barley penetrate the thicker parts of the trees and all that you can see is some softer rays and warm glow on the ground.
All the colors blended perfectly together.

Added a smaller vingetting on the upper part of the photo to soften the sky a bit as well as added a boarder - All in CS2.

:bulletblue::bulletblue:
This photo is best shown with darker surroundings. Mabye it's time we have some optional alterations upon viewing deviations?
With this I mean that there could be "view in darker/lighter" conditions-button that you press and then the surrounded area would fade into another color. It's more just to the deviations sometimes since contrast can kill. Gonna take this up with DA

:bulletblue::bulletblue:

Enjoy!

Has an odd mood and tone; a mix between curiously eerie and warm euphoria. :o Good color gradations. Nice shot.

This is so pretty. Can't wait for autumn to really kick in here!! The colors, that smell...ah, it makes me happy just thinking about it!
This would make a gorgeous jigsaw puzzle (and I totally mean that as a compliment :)).

I see your point about the bright DA background surrounding the picture. With some images it works because of the good contrast between the picture and the background but when you want a softer feeling it does come as a bit of a shock as you reach the edge.
Autumn is such a strange time. There is sadness at the end of the year and the loss of the summer. For those who must now head back to work (and don't really care for where they are placed) the freedom to run with the sun is gone. But there is warmth too. As things get cooler and the plants start producing the last crop for the year, blankets, hot water bottles, hot coco or chocolate come back along with the rain. I love the sound of rain on my window at night when I'm wrapped up in a soft blanket. Safe and settled.
This picture reminds me more of going out to clear the garden and having a bonfire at the end of the day to cook potatos, chesnuts, sausages and marshmellows. You're chilly and slightly muddy but so happy and even those the world seems to be falling asleep, you still feel kinship with it.
The other thing it reminds me of is going for a walk and just getting away from all the racket. As the year draws to a close it seems even the noise of the roads which we live with everyday just quietens down a bit. The sun still warms but not for much longer and the trees are showing how the rainbow has alot to learn before it can call itself the ruler of colours. Stand still, watch the world and enjoy the last of summer's warmth. Enjoy the food while it's in season and watch the wildlife do the same. The cold weather is on it's way but for now, let the sun keep you warm.
Beautiful, beautiful image.

It's so great to get commenst from ya, always such a pleasure to read 'em. They're always written with thoughts and care.

Dunno what to reply more really, I'm just really greatful for the kickas comment. You really hit the head on the nail here with your interpretation of the shot, it's exact those kinda feelings I had when I saw it, well sorta :D.

When I see this photo I think of autumn as a season with color, life and joy.
This is the season of the year when the hours in the woods are the most precious. The wildlife prepare for winter, the air dries up and the atmosphere calms down. You can almost feel the tention in the air as the sun goes down in the afternoon, the tention of the cold night getting closer and closer.
THAT feeling is the best in the world, when you take a deep breath and exhale as you think - AHhh, this is life. Then by that you get a smile on your face because you get this sensational feeling in your body, the feeling of happiness. All this just because of the weather and season of the year, it's kinda powerful =).

Thank you man, you're really one of my dearest friends around here, don't ever stop beeing so open minded!
Cya soon again with some more photography, I got a shitload of thigns coming slowly now, some more natural shots of course but also some studio "caugh, at home" shots which are pretty neat.

Later!

Thank you, nice with the support.
The light actually was pretty good here, it was the perfect time to snap it since the contrast was good towards the brighter/darker areas. The timing were good, sometimes you gotta be a bit lucky :D.

chers for the fav, much appreciated!

No it's a shade of some cross like symbol there, not intentional tho, just a nice add afterwards :D. It was just a couple of branches there.
