    Congratulations Mepo! An excellent shot - and you were right, the quantity did it this time :-)

    Congrats on another TT finish Mepo, great pic!!
(and for the plane... mmm... maybe a little R/C one flying below this wonderful tree? I'm thinking of something like... mumble mumble... the Red Baron triplane? could be a nice "red on red" LOL :-) :-)

    Thanks Jade - after my last entry with a maple leaf I figured I should try quantity over quality :-)

    Maybe I'm just partial to maple leaf's but every look it gets better! Funny how so often our first shot turns out the best. It is only after another 24 that you realize how well you caught this one. Congrats on a fine finish.

    Raf: Ta mutchly, glad you liked it - I got soaked by lying on my back in the grass to take this first shot so I probably have litchen growing on my back by now:-). . . harpanzo-hope - Thank you for the compliment - appreciated. . . LaRee - Thank you; we were so lucky to have the redest tree in town in our front yard this year. . . broph - Thank you - the light on the trunk made this one stand out from the others I took, glad you noticed it. . . Franz07 - Danke, Glad you liked it and thanks for commenting. . . dodrizzt - Gracias, I should have had a plane flying over the tree for you :-)

    Lovely red leaves, mixed with the rest of colours, and a nice composition too, that low angle works very well to make the eyes follow the tree to the colourful leaves.
TT for sure in a great competition, well done!!

    Beautiful natural color-explosion. Very good finding for the theme.

    Nice shooting angle.

The dappled sunlight on the tree trunk is a nice contrast to the colorful leaves above.

    I love this. I always like this angle of view on a tree and the wonderful color here makes this special. Very nice.

    Lovely capture of autumn colours. I like the touch of moss/lichen up the trunk as it gradually leads us to the riot of reds. Nicely done.

    Jade O. Nice to see someone appreciates how hard it is to get this shot right and very happy that you think I did. This tree is in our front yard and I'm embarrassed to say that I took about 25 shots over three days. As it turned out I used the very first one that I took I have several others further up the tree and a few degrees to the left and right for sale cheap :-)

    I've seen many good up the tree shots and this is certainly one of them. They look deceivingly simple but are a real challenge to do this well.
