More fall colors ~

A sampling of images I took around the neighborhood today. I’m not positive about the ID of the turkey tail mushrooms, but it seems the best guess. The redbud leaf makes a nice contrast to all the autumn color. I like the delicacy of the hosta leaves, although I wish the photo was sharper. I’m still finding that my images do not seem as sharp as they should be.

I got exactly three photos of fall foliage this year that I’m happy with. The top photo was taken with a Fuji X10 and not adjusted in any way. The second and third photos, taken with a Pentax K-r with 50 mm lens, were cropped slightly and needed a bit of color correction. I’m getting very few sharp pictures lately, even with the image stabilization that is built into both cameras. Frustration!
