VW21: Seasonal Colors Critique

Welcome to another episode of Visual Wilderness! This time, we talk about photographing seasonal colors. Check out some of the beautiful images submitted by members of the community – as we tell you what we love, and what we might change if we had the opportunity to shoot in the same location. We even compare a shot from Jay’s portfolio with a photo from a community member… and guess who comes out ahead?

About Author Varina Patel

There is nothing more remarkable to me than the power of nature. It is both cataclysmic and subtle. Slow and continuous erosion by water and wind can create landscapes every bit as astonishing as those shaped by catastrophic events – and minuscule details can be as breathtaking as grand vistas that stretch from one horizon to the other. Nature is incredibly diverse. Burning desert sands and mossy riverbanks… Brilliant sunbeams and fading alpenglow… Silent snowfall and raging summer storms… Each offers a unique opportunity. I am irresistibly drawn to the challenge of finding my next photograph, and mastering the skills required to capture it effectively.

    I just now noticed that one of my images was in this critique. Great feedback, appreciate it!

    You were totally right, Jay, that light lasted for a minute or less, so not much time to try different positions or compositions.
