Photography is all about the right timing , this images are taken at around 6 pm CA time where the sun is almost setting..with just the right ambient light , Open your aperture at the widest 1.8 to 5.6 to get enough light and produce a soft shallow depth of field without any sun glares..
i know many of us here are using Nikon D40 , this small light weight DSLR make so many wonders if you just know how to tweak the 3D color Matrix II ,
Set your saturation to enhance mode , that simple mode can enhance the colors and tone of the subject without any falloff and comas to the edges…the kit lens that come with the Nikon D40 is one of the best lens so far..with ED marking ( Extra low dispersion) Glass that reduces Chromatic aberrations..

      amazing set rob... #2.. selectively colouring the leaves... but why not ISO a bit lower... cos like in #3 there is significant amount of noise in d background!
      thanks fr sharing!
