    I asked my daughter to try to stand still for 10 seconds for a long exposure shot. This is her best effort. I had no flash so added a little light with my mobile torch. Phuket, Thailand.

    The autumn time has finally arrived in Austria, in previoius years I've taken autumn pictures in September!
    Here's one while standing on the corner of a hairpin bend on the main road leading to our little village in Pilsbach
    With the wide angle lens you can see the sharp bend and the incline nicely.
    I liked this one, with the bus coming up the hill, best. Maybe I'll use it in next year when we refresh the pictures in our local open air gallery. The audience love local shots!

    10 seconds is a long time, she did well :-)
    Definitely one to include in your holiday photo book, if you make one.
    The atmosphere with the setting sun, the clouds, lights and reflections, and of course, the elegance added by your daughter make this really good !

    Used a tripod for this shot. I wanted to get something with people but could not manage anything nice. This one is a crop from a distance shot.

    Autumn colour seems to have been very late everywhere this year, or non-existant. These are a nice evocation, especially 1 and 3.

    This hairpin shot is so nice, the location gives me so many ideas to try. Colours are so nice.

    Carpineti

    Following on from my set last week, this is the little Romanesque church just outside the castle walls. It was badly damaged in the savage German repression of Partisan activity in the Apennines during WW2, when it was shelled and set on fire. The interiors are from a visit the week before.

    Below the castle I visited a little hamlet that ten years ago when I last visited, was derelict. Now it is being saved by being restored for second homes.

    I dunno, I think the first would have been better without the bus and cars. Or at least with a more interesting vehicle. It's a spectacular composition though, I really like it. As is the second. The light and the falling leaves scream autumn. Great stuff.

    I like the last the best. I can almost feel the damp dripping out of my monitor.

    People or no, the shot has a lot of merit. I like it as is.

    Good composition, good colors, correct exposure...
    The first one is my favorite. I also like the second one, but I wish the road had the light of the first one, maybe a polarizing filter would have reduced the reflection.

    It's cute. These little places have such stories to tell. I like the landscape too. And the little detail of the last.

    Here's another verision of the hairpin bend with just one small car, would be easy to remove it, but the version with the big bus looked somehow more interesting to me. Looked all a bit empty without it. I was thinking if I display it locally people here would think "Oh, I travel with that bus" :-)
    An old timer car with a driver wearing old fashioned goggles and leather hat would have been great , but none came by ;-)
