Hi Everyone, that you for all the entries to The Colours of Autumn Photography competition and sharing it with friends.
The winning shot was awarded to Justine McNeil – https://justinemcneil.smugmug.com. Justine used Nikon D50, (focal length: 100mm, exposure: 1/320sec, f/5.6)
“Battersea Autumn” – It was a beautiful cold autumn day with a crisp blue sky. The leaves were a perfect mix of colours and I was lucky to find there were very few people in the park. It felt like I could of been in the countryside and loved the fact London provides this beautiful sanctuaries of green spaces.
Second place went to Oliver Tillard – “Autumn ceiling”
Chris Town – “Golden hour in the park”, Hyde Park.
Alan Cartwright – “Turning Leaf”.
I found the leaf in my garden and I took the photo in the lounge. The leaf, almost transparent in the sun, shows that perfect balance between the green of summer and the red of autumn.
