Jolie atmosphère.

Oh this is beautiful, Frank! I remember the colors of that day - and you've captured them perfectly!

I like this Frank. The way that strong sun it hitting those trees is a fine sight
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Chris, the light was great that evening.
terrific lighting here, Frank, i do like the dusty/misty feel here.
Frank L Croston.: Getting towards the end of the day, Ayush, wonderful light.

Good example of how powerful the nearby star is Frank, and how it illuminates to our light detectors.
Frank L Croston.: Strange that we don't think of it that way, Andrew...Well you do obviously as you just said so! smile

Gobsmacked, indeed.

Just a thought, that worries me. When I have a shot like this one, where the sky is blown, like here to the left - I don't like it. In the back of my head is the thought that I have blown it and should have used the polarising or CD filter. When I view a picture like this one, I don't mind the blown part, because it is reality. One can't see everything when looking part ways into the sun.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Louis, good to get constructive criticism. Sometimes, ( mostly in fact smile ) I don't think that hard about shots, and this one was on a hike where I was thinking more about where to put my feet than what I was taking, but I liked the end result, pretty much straight out of the camera.

Oh, this is a wonderful, atmospheric image I like very much!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Philine, I'm pleased you do. smile
I think they have found it.
Frank L Croston.: Just around the corner I think!
A very good shot Frank, beautiful countryside. I see you've had a judging from Louis today as have I. He gave mine a good going over and to be honest he is right as I feel he is with this regarding the blown out sky top left.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Brian, I'm all for constructive criticism, not enough of it on here. Yes it is blown out, I agree, but without it being so I think it would have lost something, been to clinical perhaps, plus, I don't know how I would have done it ! smile
The colors are magnificent, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Indeed they were, Ginnie. Thanks.
This is a bit of a WOW Frank!
Frank L Croston.: I was thinking the same thing at the time, Bill smile Thanks.
Great shot, Frank - was it really like this, or has a bit of twiddling helped?
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Tom. Pretty much straight out of the camera.
