Autumn Feature Week One

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 31, 2011, 6:40 AM
So autumn is upon us again - I would absolutely love that fact if I didn't live in Spain! We tend not to really get much in the way of autumn or spring... therefore, autumn to me reads as winter, and winter is no fun living here!

However, I can at least look at the wonderful photography and manipulations with all their glorious autumn colours here on dA!

Here are a few quotes describing how some writers have felt about autumn:

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. ~Albert Camus

It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life. ~P.D. James.

Fiery colors begin their yearly conquest of the hills, propelled by the autumn winds. Fall is the artist. ~Takayuki Ikkaku, Arisa Hosaka and Toshihiro Kawabata

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting
and autumn a mosaic of them all. ~Stanley Horowitz

The new challenge is 'Affiliate Stock'. For this challenge you must use stock from the listed affiliates: 1 model and 2 object stocks. They don't have to be all from one provider, you can mix and match, and you can use other stock from any provider on dA - a very open challenge so inspiration is required.... however, inspiration can definitely be found from the stock providers' galleries, so why not take a look :)

You can check out the rules in this Blog entry

This challenge runs until September 11th.

This week is the first of our Autumn features for this year.

Beautiful colours, vibrance, bright sunlight.... so many attractions about the autumn season that it must be a delight for both photographers and manipulators.

I was delighted to find that there is a wealth of new autumn resources and stock images as well as photomanipulations - everyone seems to be starting early... which is really great.

If you would like to start dabbling in the autumn theme, I hope you can find some inspiration from this week's feature :fingerscrossed:

And don't forget... if you do upload something on the theme, please note the group with the link so I can feature it in the coming weeks  :iconblinkthanksplz:
