Two very quick iPhone snaps taken today as Manchester city centre was bathed in golden evening sunlight. I cropped the pictures and combined various filters in Tadaa and Photoshop.

    [ Smiles ] In my opinion, leaves always makes a great picture.

    Thank you for sharing these!

  2. That lighting really brings out the glow in the colours

    • It’s spooky, but the evening sun was just right, making everything flame yellow. Had to grab some pics even though I was on the move.

  3. I often wish I could just take the entirety of autumn just for art and photography…

    • It’s a very inspiring season, and stops me getting too down about the end of summer. I’m hoping to do some more autumnal stuff soon…

  4. Beautiful – it looks like you’ve captured a rainbow with the first one. Love that autumn glow and everything about the season.

  5. Ah, I love trees and adore leaves of every shape, texture, and color. Great shot!
    Although why is it that some of our best shots are created on the move?

    • Thank you! It’s interesting: does multi-tasking make us more instinctive? I always find that over-thinking can muddy a good idea…

      • That is so true. I must say that I can over think a shot to death until it has lost whatever made me want to stop and photograph it in the first place. Other times I could be focusing on something else in a shot and people respond favorably, crazy. Gotta just keep at it anyway.

  6. I just love the autumn leaves, can I have your permission to paint them

    • Yes of course, just make sure you show us the results!

      • Hi Dale, I’m honoured! Thanks for getting back, but I can’t see the picture. Send it to me via my contact page above if it won’t post here, thanks 🙂
