Rural landscapes: the end of autumn colour


I parked my car just a few feet away and immediately noticed this compelling mix of fence posts, yellow leaves and brilliant red siding. Colourful exteriors are quite common in this eastern Canadian province, but this scene made me stop and spend 20 minutes trying out compositions. This is the best of the bunch.
I went for a very shallow depth of field, so the soft-focus siding would complement the scene, rather than dominate it. Just a processing note: the fence posts had a slight blue cast that I didn’t care for, so I converted them into black-and-white.
