Great shot, as always. Question: Did you chuck the leaves in the water (at the bottom) for the shot? Or were they just fortuitously in the right place at the right time?

Heh, great question. I am absolutely not above staging a shot like that (I have no shame when it comes to photography), but I really did find those leaves just as you see them...with one exception: the small, bright yellow leaf in the upper right corner of the group was placed there by my husband on his own initiative. He stretched over and dropped that one in there while I was shooting, and I thought it worked, so that's what you see in the photo!

Dale: Brilliant timing on the Mallard

AlexH: It wasn't till I looked at your picture twice that I realised why you had named it thus! Interesting looking conqueror!

Phrasikleia: Nice motion trails and I love the moss texture.

This one is from the zoo the other day. These 2 were in the shade for the whole time I was there unfortunately, at the time of this picture I was really hoping that the one on the left would nuzzle or lick the other. It wasn't till I spoke to their keeper when they were fed that I found out they only do that sort of thing to infants.

I do look forward to a new body and glass later on that handles shade much better, but beggars can't be choosers. Considering this is shot through wire and with my basic setup, I'm pretty happy with it!

Splendid idea. I could do with a new body too. Maybe I can get some kind of part-exchange deal. Even a new pair of legs would be good...

About 50 yards to the left of the belfry is the famous Caffe Florian (nice name!) where Casanova used to frequent. Did you take this shot from Saint George's Church from across the Canal?

With these sort of photo's were there is no obvious horizon line how do you decide how to tilt your camera?

Wow. Are the orange parts of the photo Autumnal leaves?

Mine for the day, as always comments are welcome!

While you're handing out body parts, I could use a new neck and a new back. Doesn't have to be the latest thing...last year's model would do fine...

Yup. The same leaves you see fallen on the rocks and walls of the gorge. We had a lot of fun looking for little whirlpools in the river that day.

I thought so, they're great. The brightness and saturation make them look like some sort of tropical firefly!

Since I tend to use a tripod, I generally have time to straighten things up. But, yes, in a pic without a horizon I just compose by eye... knowing I have a second chance to make minor changes when editing.

The problem I have is with buildings. I've only got one eye, and I can spend ages trying to make a church spire stand up straight. If I rotate left it looks wrong; if I rotate right it looks no better.

Gotta love a sharp wit!

With the utmost respect to Doylem, my instincts tell me this is more a statement of fact rather than wit.

Hiking near the top of Mount Shasta a few minutes after sunrise the sun gently touches the peaks directly across as well as a the tips of a group of pine trees near the bottom left, right by the road.

3 exposures blended together using multiple exposure blending techniques, luminosity selections and other advanced masking to extend the dynamic range.
