Very nice series. Lovely framing in the last image. Like the colours of the 4th.

Good eye mate. I see you cropped the third image. I really like the shimmering water.

You have some very nice images here. I especially like # 4 and 5. What happened to the WB of # 3, the right side seems to be different from the left side.

Thanks for the compliments.
The WB is constant for the image.
It just looks that way because of the gradual change of colors of the trees as you move from left to right, which also changes the color of the reflection in the water.
The tiny patches of yellow and red on the far right is the same as the ones on the left.

I wanted to achieve a feeling of gradual change from warm to cold in this picture,
From the warm fall colors, to the cold green pines, to the barren rocks

Gorgeous shots Lihang. The one of parliament hill is stunning. That third shot looks like Pinks Lake up in the Gatineau.

I love the road, lake, and parliament. The others look ok to me, but not as good as the others. Very nice views of Ottawa, I love that you tried new things! Good work.

Beautiful shots, especially parliament. How did you light the tree?

I live in Navan (just south of Orleans/Fallingbrook)
