Beautiful colours Henry - love those detailed close-ups.

As I looked around that oasis in urban concrete desert, I felt, hmm, if we are determined enough, we can preserve nature.
A fall cityscape in Central Park, New York City. The inclusion of high rise building was intentional to show the symbiosis of (urban) civilization and (nature) preservation.

Thank you Andy. I tried an inside out model. Normally you get out of the city to see nature. Here you get out of the nature to see the city.

Wonderful work by all.

No colourful leaves here worth a shot. Late September mid
October I past up a good few. So here are some berries.

Thank you for the lovely shots of nature in autumn, Sury and David Antony. :D

:D Sury, I try to keep as silent on the photos as possible before my humble summaries of reviews are uploaded to not give anything away but I must say that I love how you are building the concepts of your photos lately... there's a very different approach to your photography which made a move from gear-acquisition to photo frame conceptualization which I find very pleasing. And I also feel that you are enjoyng the new you and your new photos. You definitely moved past the equipment and nicely gliding into the 'feel-what-you-are-framing' set of mind. It's a pleasure vewing your photo entries ! :D
Thanks for sharing !


:D David Antony, those are some healthy-looking, delicious berries awaiting winter's cold birds to feast on them. Generously offered on barren branches.

Thanks for sharing !

Yildiz

ps. Always welcome to share more everyone while I'll be working on my evaluations ... "the more the merrier" as they say in this particular season. : )

Yildiz,
Thank you very much for your kind words yesterday. Your feedback is very much appreciated.
And my wife thought I was giddy with joy yesterday because of our (29th) wedding anniversary. :lol:

With best regards,
Sury

Based on the suggestion by Yildiz.....
Keeping up with the symbiosis of urban growth and natural growth. A peaceful coexistence of man-made and nature made.
