"AUTUMN, TOBINS TRACK, ARROWTOWN" by COLIN WALKINGTON; Grade: Merit.
Autumn landscapes which make the viewer take a second look are quite difficult to achieve and the low viewpoint chosen by the author does just that - well done. This is an intimate landscape with the autumn leaves on the right filling a large area of the frame . Selecting a smaller aperture, maybe f16 and focussing about one third of the way into the image would achieve a sharper foreground. The variety of colours among the autumn leaves make a lovely mosaic of colours.
