Autumn Leaves IV (Homage to the EX)

Posted by
Ralph Jones (Detroit, United States) on 4 November 2009 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

I ran into the EX while taking this photo, I thought I would quote Charles Barkley and dedicate this to the EX.
After a tough loss reporters surrounded Barkley to ask him about the game, his quote was simple, "Why don't you make like a tree and leave?".

Mission Statement:
To document the city in an attempt to inspire an appreciation and understanding of the uniqueness of Detroit, her buildings, and her people.

Speramus meliora; resurget cineribus.
We hope for better things; it will arise from the ashes.

i'm loving the "red leaves on blue sky" set here, another great picture, this is my favorite so far due to the use of negative space, i love the big blue sky in the background. that cloud is also a bonus.

Gorgeous contrasts and strong colours make for another great Autumn image Ralph. I like the soft focus of the white cloud especially.

Beautiful capture here! A simple, yet effective composition that incorporates rich colors and warm sunlight on the leaves, which in turn cast their own shadows against other leaves below them.

Nice that it's a peaceful shot of some leaves rather than you setting them on fire, stomping on them, and then taking a picture. :)

A fine bright homage softly she leaves, as for Charles Barkley he has never been at a loss for words.
