311. I Found The Fall - Part.I

Ok, So I decided to Stop my macro sets just for an instant (I don't want you to get annoyed about my constant pictures about bugs or always macros or close ups. )

I've been amazed by many of you with your Autumn shots, about the vivid shots, the colors, the simply beauty that autumn can be. And I wanted to do the same, but in my area, (i mean the closest forest), is a pine area, so I had no hope for doing something like that.
Although Today I went to Guimarães (Place known as the cradle of Portugal - I took pictures of the castle, later on I'll also post it lol), and I went to the city park, and I found the REAL Autumn that I wanted.
So expect to see these series (maybe more 3 posts I guess), and I hope you can enjoy it, if you enjoy it as I do.

Process:
* In this set, I decided to make 1 paronamish shot of an old house inside the park
* I made 4 of the pictures in HDR because I wanted to give it a bit more detail and color to it.
* The sharpness seems ok to me.
* I was about to make some of these, and others that are yet to come in BW, but hey, I should let them in color, because that is the spirit of the fall right? what do you think?

atszabo Definitely color pictures for fall, I say.

lookwhatisaw You know, I really enjoyed hiking or driving through Portugal along the Douro or in the area of Guimarães and finding those beautiful, old, stone houses that were partly in ruin - entire villages sometimes. They are so enchanting. That is why I really like seeing number 4. I can't wait to see your pics of the Castelo de Guimarães. I also remember well the beautiful old houses up behind the castelo. The doorways are beautiful!

stabeez The old house is beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

????? I like 3 and 4. Very curious about the things in the first shot... What are they? It's good to change and accept new challenges :-) Very nice autumn set. Keep on shooting...

elizzi I love 3..it just sums up Autumn for me...what a brilliant set..it's nice that you took a different turn this time,although I do like your macros
elizzi · 2010-11-06: 19:56
Jarvo Very nice set Ricky, you certainly found it there.
Jarvo · 2010-11-06: 20:01
livelovelaugh Glad you found autumn there. I love the various paths. I think that b/w would be interesting to look at, but yes, I agree that in the spirit of fall, they should be in color. :)
livelovelaugh · 2010-11-06: 20:14

josy63 I say bravo Ricky! New and beautiful ! A post in B&W of the autumn would not have made the same effect, and I have a preference for 4

Kozuka Wonderful shots! :)
Kozuka · 2010-11-07: 04:47
yellodog Lovely shots. A bit of a problem with the grey HDR "mist", I don't know how to tackle that although it's usually better if you use tone compression rather than "detail enhancement" (I'm talking Photomatix here, I don't know which program you are using).
yellodog · 2010-11-07: 05:15

LOL!
