Creek by signmeupscotty Creek by signmeupscotty
One of the beautiful views on my hike along the Rheinsteig trail. The forests are showing first signs of autumn already.

This is a really nice woodland scene. I like the way the stream draws your eyes into the picture and seems to draw you deeper into the forest because of the way the trees are spread out (seemingly) more sparsely where you are stood.

The colours have come out really nicely as well - you seem to have a good eye for colour, as I've seen from your other photos.

Just be careful not to "burn out" the highlights - the sky, where we can see it, is bright white, and it looks like you've lost detail in the reflections on the wood across the screen and in some parts of the water itself. If you lose this information in-camera (by overexposing) it can never be got back!

Anyway, this is a very nice image overall. It looks like the sort of thing you would see in a calendar!
What do you think?

Cropping out the sky makes this a much more intriguing image. It's a nice scene.

Beautiful photo. I like the play of light and shadows that can be seen in the landscape. The trees angling from both sides towards the river creates a triangular focal point that seems to draw the eyes in. Great shot. From this beautiful scenery, it must have been a great hike.

It's been a great experience, yes. We hiked 180km over a course of 10 days, negotiating an altitude difference of about 8000m. The Rheinsteig trail is in Germany. It runs along the bank of the river Rhine.
