    Supplemental assignment. This assignment can carry over a few months. This is probably more like a show me thread, but we'll try and keep it to new photos from this 2007 season and this thread.

    Autumn leaves will be turning soon if not already in some parts of the country. Also it's Halloween season. Some people decorate, some don't. Apple picking. Pumpkin patches. All this can make for some great photography ideas. I'm sure there are some things I forgot. Again it doesn't have to be Disney related, but if you happen to be going to Disney during the Autumn season and happen to attend MNSSHP or takes pics around the parks of the seasonal decor, by all means share them with us.

    More idea's to get people out there using their camera's.

    Show us what you got.

    Don't forget our current monthly assignment as well: October '07: Depth of Field

    I had my camera with me when we stopped at Bob Evans for lunch.
    I think they do a nice seasonal display. Here's a pumpkin!

    This last one obviously has a bit of photoshopping done to it - hope that's ok.

    i am so envious. It has been so HOT not just warm here. I jumped in our pool on Saturday - and wasn't chilled at all. The water temp in the pool was 85.

    Maybe someday Fall will arrive here.

    Marinerbaby - Those photos are precious!

    Thanks Jeanne and Lizziejane! On that last shot I lightened it up a bit, applied a gaussian blur on a copy of the background layer and then dropped the opacity of the blur until I got the effect I was looking for.

    Wasn't the best of days and we are only at about 25-30% of peak, but I had some free time today and went looking for some New England Fall Foliage. Didn't find to much (really crappy rainy weather). But did manage these 2 shots in Concord, MA.

    I did adjust white balance (from auto to daylight) and boosted saturation to adjust for the poor weather conditions.

    Very nice! Our leaves look nothing like that. I've been wanting to see some red and orange. :)
