Photograph info: This photo was taken on Monday afternoon, the same day as the previous pear shot. We had lovely light and warm weather that day, ideal conditions for raking up piles of fallen leaves and jumping into them afterward... and photographing the results. :)
Camera settings and post-processing: Shot with the Canon EOS 5D and the Canon 85mm f/1.2L lens at f/2.8, 1/320s, ISO 200. Removed some spots/dust/dirt, curves adjustments for contrast, brightness, saturation and de-saturation, color balancing for tone.
Thank you for visiting Durham Township!
On a different note, I started feeling a little sad about how people are treating each other during this presidential election season, so I designed a few tee-shirts to remind everyone that beneath our campaign buttons, we're still human beings with hearts!

The Fall Girl. Leaves in her hair, trees in her eyes.....and a little lip gloss?.....Beautiful.
Love your framing. Now, which rake did you use?
Great idea and great work. I really like how the skin tones and the color of maple leaves match.
Awesome. Her eyes are filled with stars. Wonderful light.
Can't stop to look to this picture, it's really impressive.
Reaaly awesome! I love it.
david tinnon: Chapstick. :)
Mmahdi: Love it! Thanks for sharing.
This is wonderful! The catchlights in her eyes are really amazing...Gorgeous! The light is just perfect.
It brings back memories of the flower shots you did of me at Round Valley a few years back, only you have a much prettier model here. :)
We still don't have enough leaves down to really do much raking around here just yet. Soon though, very soon.
Incredible color. This image caught my attention immediately. Beautiful subject.
such a pretty face :) its a lovely picture and the leaves are amazing. Love fallen maple leaves
That's a very original picture. Love it :)
A perfect book cover.
The book itself probably still to be written.
Marta, probably a Face Book.
Kathleen, a Beautiful Pear and a Beautiful Pair all in one afternoon--that's a productive day!
I also appreciate your political commentary and have fwd'd it to others. You do a lot of hearts good, thanks #.....(where'd I put the big calculator?......)
The catchlights in your subjects warm brown eyes make this photo...that, and the composition. Bravo. And thank you so much for the t-shirt commentary. Here, here!
What a breathtakingly wonderful photograph! You continue to amaze Kathleen!
stunning shot! the contrast from the brittle leaves to the soft skin, the simple use of colour, and the eyes... those eyes just sparkle! Awesome shot!
FUN! Reminds me of images of people buried in sand on a beach.
I love the light in the eyes. Great shot!
Wow! Stunning image! The light in the eyes is superb!
I only saw the top part of the photo on the screen and nearly jumped out of my skin when I scrolled down and saw the face--not because it's not a beautiful face and a great picture, but because it startled me. Unexpected.
Adorable eyes! Very artistic shot
What a beautiful image! It is excellent in so many areas, but I just love the tones and colouring!
This is the loveliest portrait you've done, I think. Autumn immortal.
Nice sentiment with the T-shirts! Love the colours and the tones, those golds are beautiful.
Great capture. It is a very strong portrait.
Outstanding shot and idea! Very creative I must say.
just amazing! And creative! I might have to "steal" the idea, and take some shots of my boys in the leaves. :)
a lovely photo. very nice, also the glance in her eyes.
Been follwing your pictures from some time thru google reader. Just wanted to say how much I enjoy them
Merry Christmas to you and yours Kathleen!
How did I miss this one before? :)
this is an absolutely beautiful photo. the subject (girl) is SO beautiful... She should be a model!!!
Flawless beauty... You can see into her soul by looking into her eyes!!!
