    Logan, Utah

    Here are a few foliage photos I took a couple of weekends ago. The maple leaves are from a trip up to Logan, Utah. They were taken during a mountain bike ride (surprise!). The aspen was actually taken in Salt Lake City, just before we left for Logan. I'm a little disappointed with the maple leaves because they aren't really sharp enough. I never carry a tripod when I ride and shooting those handheld was just a bit much to ask with the low light and the 18-200mm IS - even with image stabilization. I should have tried pushing the ISO another stop. Maybe that would have made the difference. But I think the real problem wasn't camera shake - it was me moving too close to the leaves. Maybe using continuous AF would have kept them sharp. A smaller aperture definitely would have made a difference. But then I would have had to use an even slower shutter speed...

    Anyway, they're so pretty I wanted to share them. And I thought also sharing some of my thoughts on why they aren't good enough might be useful to some.

    Next time I vow to be more careful!

    Next time

    OK, I show my (2 bit) - (2 cents) worth.
    I reduced to 800x600 but still too big - reduced again to HALF.
    Both times auto resharpen. How do they look to you?

    I like these. The saturation looks just right. I like the differentiation in the colours between the foreground and background in the first one, and the man-destroying-nature message in the second one.

    Re: Fall Foliage Photo Gallery

    Gotrocks, your photos are fine. If you couldn't load after resizing to 800x600, I would guess your quality is set too high. If you are using photoshop, after resizing and click save it brings up a box in which you can adjust the quality. It will need to be set at 8 or sometimes 9 or it just retains too many pixels or something.
    Keep Shooting!

    Re: Fall Foliage Photo Gallery

    Great images from everyone! I'll have to remember this thread the next time that I'm out in the country!
    This is my Nikon. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My Nikon is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I master my life. My Nikon, without me, is useless. Without my Nikon, I am useless. I must fire my Nikon true. I must shoot straighter than any enemy who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will....

    Thank you again Frog. Now let's see what this looks like from the same trip as other three.

    Live and learn..... die and forget it all.
    One more thank you.
    There are so many wonderful pictures on this site, and since I don't feel qualified to critique I just enjoy and go on.
    Thanks to all who show their work (efforts).

    Nice one, Carleton. Fall leaves are such a great subject. Once I start shooting them it's hard to stop. I find myself just wandering, looking for more interesting characters

    I take it this is a studio shot? I should try that. I rarely shoot anything besides products in the studio. I need to do bring more food, leaves, flowers, etc. in and play with them under the lights.
