"Autumn in focus"
|Photo courtesy of Fred Kuipers.
Sometimes a single sentence can tell a story just as well as an
entire book, and the same holds true in photography. A wide-angle
shot of a hillside blanketed with the spectacular colors of fall can
be a veritable treat for the eyes, but just a few well-placed autumn
leaves against a blurred background is just as effective at letting
us know that summer has past, and winter is on its way.
Photographer Fred Kuipers has managed to capture the very essence of
fall in today's picture, and with just two leaves in focus we still
get the intended message loud and clear. Like a surgeon's scalpel,
the tool of selective focus enables us to dramatically alter the
"big picture" by concentrating the bulk of our attention on just a
small part of it.

Mr. Kuipers has used his control of depth of field in a masterful
way on this shot. You can’t help but get the message that walking is
getting “crunchier” all the time as freshly fallen leaves carpet our
walkways. Good job, Fred!
