Farewell Autumn by KatMagic Photography

Featured in: Canadiana (November, 2012)
Top 10 Placement: Benches – A Bench in Autumn Challenge (Dec., 2012)

The last of my autumn series with my soft-focus lens. Dialed it right up to the softest setting here (always momentarily makes me feel I need to visit the eye doctor…). Image taken as the leaves were passing their prime – a chilly day with autumn bidding us farewell and reminding us colder days are now closing in…

Never completely sure about borders; however, I felt the black points needed an anchor so added one.

    I like that soft focus lens of yours, Kat! What a great scene you captured, it has all these wonderful components that work so well together, the strong vertical lines of the tree trunks, the curved path leading to the bench that is framed by the overhead tree branches….and then you add that little bit of softness that does make the viewer feel that Autumn was but a dream. Gorgeous work, I’m glad you caught this one before all the leaves fell off!

  • Hi Christine and thank you for such a wonderful comment…mostly, that bench is occupied so I was glad to see, when I wanted to take this picture, that nobody was there….I’m glad you like this and I really appreciate your very kind and thoughtful words.

    This looks like an ad for a magazine or straight out of a movie!! The details and color are popping off the page! I love your processing..Spectacular work, my friend!!!

  • Hi Kristi, thank you so much.. I can’t take too much credit as that lens really did the work for me.. I added a border..! I never really used that lens much and now it’s getting a work-out.. So glad you like this and thanks for taking the time to stop by as I know you have worries on your shoulders right now… hugs…K.

    This is exceptional, Katherine! What a gorgeous effect. Beautiful autumn colours. The empty bench and the soft focus adds a wistfulness to the whole scene.

  • Thank you, Maggie, that’s a very good description of what the lens adds..“wistfulness”.. thank you!

    Again, a perfect use of your soft-focus lens to create a light-filled. dreamy mood!

  • Thank you, Celeste, not everyone’s taste and I wouldn’t want a steady diet of this style but the autumn scenes seemed well suited to it…thank you again.
