Love the colours on display in Autumn, it's a shame the seasons don't go Spring, Summer, Autumn, Spring. And miss out winter :D great photo like what you have done.
23 May 2011 10:34am
A wonderful capture of colour and the sense of motion is outstanding. Well done.
23 May 2011 11:06am
Brilliant... I like that motion effect ! Have a lovely day Stephen :)

Lovely motion blur, and a great reminder that the southern hemisphere is heading towards winter time.
Just wondering, do you ever get to see snow, other than up in the mountains?
23 May 2011 12:34pm
@Curly: Thanks, Curly. Yes - for us, winter is sure on the way. We only get snow in the high ranges around Canberra. It rarely snows in the city and suburbs - and no more than a few centimeters once or twice each winter.
Lovely warm colors !
23 May 2011 12:44pm
Beautiful shot and superb job with the motion!
23 May 2011 12:52pm
Beautiful capture of movement!
Great shot Stephen!
23 May 2011 12:55pm
Beauty, the blurred movement of the rider gives it an impressionistic feel to me.
23 May 2011 1:04pm
What a gorgeous tree,and great how you captured the biker like in a flash of time
next to it!
23 May 2011 1:11pm

The feeling of speed works so well here, and the carpet of leaves transforms the landscape. Nicely captured, Stephen.
23 May 2011 2:19pm
What lovely autumn image! Beautiful composition, framing and the blur is adding life to the scene! Refreshing!:-)
23 May 2011 2:26pm
The blurred inference to the cyclist is wonderful Stephen! The carpet of fallen oak leaves is majestic! Nicely captured! ;-)
23 May 2011 2:31pm
A super action shot and oak leaf delight.
23 May 2011 2:57pm
This is marvelous, Stephen! A wonderful motin shot to be sure! An what a splendid scene - truly, autumn is my favorite season....even here where the winters that follow can be nasty and cold...but I don't mind - I love the beauty of the seasons and this is a completely beautiful scene Stephen - wonderful!

This is great...the triangular elements in the comp really add to the dynamic flow.
23 May 2011 4:55pm
Well framed. Great capture of motion blur and wonderful fallen oak leaves. Beautiful colours. Excellent. Love it, Stephen. :)
23 May 2011 4:57pm
My kind of bike path. A superb photo, Stephen, with excellent detail in that glorious tree and of course a very effective motion blur. Autumn will always be my favourite season.
23 May 2011 5:01pm
Cool shot! Great pov.
Like these autumn colors, but at the moment I'm enjoying spring too...;-)))
23 May 2011 5:10pm

23 May 2011 6:41pm
Fantastic shot, Stephen. The motion-blurred cyclist makes the tree to stand out impressively.
23 May 2011 6:42pm
Winter is knocking on the door. Beautiful colors.

Autumn in Aussie is awesome. :)
23 May 2011 10:08pm
wonderful movement ... such a gorgeous place for a bike path - really nice image
23 May 2011 10:28pm
I love the carpet of leaves on the ground - and the cycle rider whizzing by is an added treat to this great view.
23 May 2011 11:23pm
23 May 2011 11:54pm
Beautiful composition captured here. Your processing brings out interesting detail in each of the leaves spotted here. That looks like a well-traveled bike path with hardly any leaves obstructing its presence. Great DoF as well, incorporating the bridge in the background.
24 May 2011 3:31am
love this image; the transience of the rider juxtaposed with the substance of the tree and bridge behind!
24 May 2011 7:44am
I like the blur, ghostly in a way.
24 May 2011 4:36pm
24 May 2011 4:58pm
Amazing photo, love the composition and sense of motion! :)
25 May 2011 10:43am
The Autumn rider or the ghost of Autumn, the question is! ;D
