Azaleas in Tokyo by AMcUK, on Flickr

We visited Japan earlier this month. Our Tokyo Free Guide took us to see an amazing Azalea display which was stunning and even more colourful than the Sakura (cherry blossom).

Re: April Photo Challenge Seasonal Colours

More votes please. Many superb photos to tax the brain.................

After the results, Zuiko (John) will be giving his opinions on all of the entries..........

It will be a feature of the challenge in future, all will be asked in turn to carry out an assessment of the entries. I just see that the close runners up don't get any credit for some superb photos................

And I want to correct that....

Re: April Photo Challenge Seasonal Colours

Here are my comments on the winning entries, comments on the remaining entries will follow in due course.

Alfbranch This superb shot owes its magical colours to the very red light of a newly risen winters sun, a phenomenon that you have to get up early for if you wish to capture it. As usual, Alf has made the effort and been richly rewarded. I love how he has cropped tight to focus attention on the lone tree and its reflection against the towering mountainside, bathed in that gorgeous light.

Chris
The contrast between crisp morning light and deep shadows helps to bring out the colours and Chris was there early enough to capture the reflections before the breeze ruffled the water. The dead tree is ideally positioned to provide foreground interest.

pdk42 I love the simple geometry of this shot, with the two trees conforming to classic rule of thirds. The plough lines in the field echo the trunks of the trees, which makes the whole composition harmonious and the verdant green captures the freshness of spring perfectly, To make the photograph complete, the billowing clouds provide plenty of drama and interest to the sky, which accounts for two thirds of the image.

AJW The gate and path beyond invite the viewer into the scene, with the rich colours and mellow light of autumn making it all the more attractive. A well-thought composition.
