    Congrats for the TT place!

I'm very sorry if my words sounds bad to you. I never thinked you were lying about PP. Sorry again, my english sucks and sometimes it's difficult to me to find the right words.

    Terraliptor: thanks. Your profile photo is scary and terrfic.
Bepar: thanks for appreciations.
Albumen, chimhow, Raghu, :
you all are right. I have to use filters for cast, glow and did PP too. Else this color is not acheivable.
LindyB : maam, so kind of you for honest and fair placement. True, this is very tough composition.

    Beautiful colours and lighting and a stunning pic. This has been in and out of my TT but my final decision put it in 11th place. So sorry! With so many excellent entries, it's a shame points couldn't be awarded for the top twenty. Good luck!

    I can't image this kind of shot is achievable! What a grand golden shine! Excellent shot.

    Best photo in the challenge by far. Some might have issues with the PP being the reason for such a great effect, but I think that the end results are all that matter. My number 1.

    Aprilesole:
Thanks a lot. Nice to hear from Winner of Mirrors.
Kankushok:
Thanks. The lighting was more than I liked to be. Even the green grass looked yellowish in early morning Sunlight and mist and further more by reflection of sunlight in grass dews
Citimars:
Thanks for appreciations, but the colors were in fact not very supportive for me. One side the fall colors turned red instead of my preferred yellow, otherside panasonic chip picked up noise in shadows. The Sun light was harsh on the left side, but that helped my FZ20 to gather incredible detail of tree branches in the right.
ccapon :
It was not too much of post processing indeed. I honestly mentioned what PP I did. Just Two warmings + glow in picassa. The sunlight needed dodging at one place. If I wanted to do too much of processing, I would have changed the red leaves into yellow too. That would have made even better photo. I could have removed the electrical lines and white box. I can send you original, infact origial had same harsh sunlight in the left and yellow, red leaves.
Xgeordie :
so nice of you. Thanks a lot for your vote.
