Quiet Place

Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.
Mark 6:31
One of the best tips for autumn photography that I've ever received is from a friend who takes pictures as a hobby. He takes amazing pictures; his eye for composition is exceptional.

This friend said that for the oranges and reds to really pop you need to have some green in the picture. We need to see, by contrast, just how orange or red or yellow the leaves really are. I think we also like to see the difference between what was and now is. Some leaves that have not yet surrendered to autumn help to tell this piece of the story.

So when you are out and about taking pictures of autumn, find patches of green and include them in your shots. You won't be sorry.
