    How wonderful. I love that if you blur your eyes it’s just a wonderful composition of abstract shapes and strong colors.

    This is a wonderful composition, made even better by the vivid color. (I love the vibrance you can get out of Velvia. So striking!)

    Great photograph, and all and all great blog.

    Huge respects for shooting just film. You are a romantic.
    And you say you’re not brave.. 😛

    Chris, you’re such a great photographer!
    I loved the read leaves but I adore B&W photos.
    You capture scenes in a very interesting way.
    I’m glad I posted “The Lovers” and you commented. This is how I got to your blog. It will be on my read list.

    Btw, I loved the red leaves …correcting

  11. It’s not easy to give an unusual color combination to an autumn leaf! Very unusual combo, despite “sky” and “leaves” being photographed ALL the time. Anyway, I likes it!! And, you know what else I’m thinking, too.

  12. This is really beautiful….love the light and shadow of the picture.

  13. You captured the color beautifully here. Excellent job. I’m not a film guy but I am curious… I’ve read a lot about the wonderful color saturation with Velvia 50. Have you ever tried it?

    This is absolutely gorgeous. I love it!

    You are very talented.
    God bless, Jonie

    you take gorgeous pictures … i love all of them!!!

  17. So many great shots on so many different films. Makes me very curious as to your monthly film costs?

    Thanks for the comment. Even though I am not very familiar with the concept of a honeycomb universe, I had heard about it beforehand but had not read up on the matter. Thinking about your question, I was initially thinking that there would be an infinity of finite universes, and realized that when scientific progress is made, one tends to regard the unmeasurable as infinite until proof of the contrary is found. I wouldn’t know, of course, all we can do is play philosopher at this point 😀

    BTW I’ve been looking at your pics, very nice!

    Maria – Such kind words. Thank you. 🙂

    Montucky – As good a comment as I’ve ever gotten. Thank you, my friend.

    Purple – Just a UV filter, nothing out of the ordinary. Payment? Naaa. I just shoot for the fun of it. Thanks for the kind words.

    Kenzie – Thanks. Yeah, I was drawn to the look of this, all of that curling. The shapes were interesting.

    Doraz – No problem. We’re all here to help each other.

    Rachel – Yes, Velvia is the best of all worlds – warmth, color, clarity.

    Bypils – Thank you for stopping by. Barcelona is a fine city.

    Emil – What can I say, I like to do things the hard way.

    Andreia – Thank you. I’m glad I have such a valuable fan. 🙂

    Pat – Yeah, I was trying for something different, although I’m not sure I exactly did that. Your praise means a great deal, though. Oh, and I got you covered. 😉

    Visual – Thank you.

    Ed – Yes, I’ve tried Velvia 50 (the older variety as well as the newer variety). It’s very rich and vivid, but it can be sensitive in certain lighting conditions. I stick with Velvia 100F because it’s less sensitive and more forgiving.

    Neither – Thanks for the kind words.

    Jonie – Such kind words. Thank you. 🙂

    Jean – Wow, all of them? Thanks. You’re too kind.

    RV – I’m actually very slow and deliberate with my shooting, so I don’t spend as much as you’d think on film and processing (maybe $50 a month at the very most). Not to say that most of my shots are good – trust me, they aren’t. I just prepare for each shot as though it will count in every possible way.

    Alex – Isn’t the theoretical fun? Thanks for stopping by, friend.

    The colors are beautiful!

    March 2, 2009 at 9:43 AM

  21. Brilliant colors. Gorgeous photo!

    March 2, 2009 at 2:13 PM

  22. The leaves are looking great…bright & colorful snap.. 🙂

    March 2, 2009 at 6:09 PM

  23. I love this one! It’s like a super close-up and more aesthetically potent take on the same “theme” as one of my amateur photos I posted:

    Camilla – Thanks. Almost didn’t get any shots this fall.

    Megan – Thank you.

    Ishani – Thanks. This was actually from the fall.

    David – Thanks. I like your shot.

    March 3, 2009 at 4:58 AM

  25. Yeah buddy I think it’s all been said here, great color and composition.

    March 3, 2009 at 3:51 PM

    Wow… great stuff. Thanks for commenting on my blog: never would have found you otherwise. Would you mind if I reproduced some of your pictures on my blog to link over to you when one particularly catches my eye? I’m not quite sure how copyright stuff works on blogging pictures, so thought I’d check with you. Again: great work! Keep it up.

    March 3, 2009 at 7:08 PM

  27. Gorgeous. Excellent saturation and contrast!

    March 4, 2009 at 6:21 AM

  28. I don’t normally comment on posts that have heaps of comments..clearly by now you know everyone loves this shot. But I can’t help it – it would be wrong to look at something so lovely and not say, “Well done!”

    fuji does make a beautiful film.

    in a previous life i played at being a photographer and my favorite film was fuji black & white.

    March 4, 2009 at 4:08 PM

  30. What a beautiful shot!! I’m glad there are others out there who still love film!!

    March 4, 2009 at 6:19 PM

    Games – Thank you. Been enjoying your comments.

    Luke – Sure, as long as you use the flickr link for my photos.

    Danielle – Why thank you. 🙂

    Beyond – I’m beyond flattered. Thank you.

    Laurel – Fuji does make some good black and white films. I particularly like Neopan 400. Thanks for stopping by.

    Barbie – Thanks. Yeah, I’ll shoot film as long as they make it.

    Dougie – Thanks.

    This is by far the best representation of Autumn I can possibly think of. I mean, you can have a path of fiery leaves, but to focus on a smaller aspect is wonderful. And you’ve caught its colors in perfect contrast with the blue sky.

    That, and thanks for encouraging me that I won’t get addicted to Facebook.

    Fluffe – Thank you. You’re too kind. 🙂
