Autumn Impressions
Thanks Marcie for help on the Title. This was taken along the Blue Ridge Parkway in thick fog and a slight misty rain. I really liked the feeling of this image. So I have added the buzz and some texture to it. Hope you all enjoy.

    Hey, category neighbor! :-) I love this! The warm tones and misty mood are perfect. And the effects give it a real masterpiece painting feel! Great title, too, Marcie!

You are welcome on the title. Fabulous image. I love the combination of yellow leaves and the orange tone glow of the grasses. The texture and buzz work great together to give it a painted almost impressionist feeling. Awesome work as always!!

Darren, so glad this was in the DD Newsletter, I would have missed it! This is a gloriously beautiful image! I love the tree in foreground, you've placed it so interestingly in the frame! And then those colors, muted with the effects make for a delicate mix of color and texture! Just incredibly beautiful!! I love it, and look forward to seeing it in the winners circle!!
