What I love about this one is that the simplicity of the subject with the dominance of the whitish trunks makes this as much about the design elements as about the scene. Rich warm autumn color, too. Congratulations on the finalist and good luck in the next round, Mitch.

Every month, with our camera in hand, we go out and find what we hope will be the “winning photo.”
Those of us that don’t get recognized, just continue to search for that special image, until one day the Congratulations come pouring in from some of the best artist and friends anyone could image.
So to the Better Photo winners for the month of September, I congratulate you on a job so well done.
My very best to all of you, Merna Nobile
