I love this type of `before and after the storm` type of lighting. You have captured it beautifully! *S* Dramatic in nature`s simplicity.

Of your three this is my fav.That sky combined with the foliage really captures the feeling of Autumn. The wind on the pond/river is echoed in the movement of the trees. I really like the cyclist,glad you gave him some room to move helps give the photo a real sense of gathering for the winter. Very nice work. IMHO

Ah the countryside refreshed and the passing storm and new found clear skies work very well for you here. A very clean and pleasant photograph to take in. I like the feeling of your cyclist having some space. Think it`s very nicely done.

I don`t know much Photoshop-inflicted mutilation had this picture had to suffer through, but I know that the end result is most excellent; it is a gorgeous (a bit overly sentimental?) image that can be printed on post cards or wall calendars... Perhaps I am prejudiced but I also think that the composition, the light, the colors, the picturesque stream or creek, the figure of the bicyclist - all look so… English, so English as a tail fin of a British Airways` jet (the old ones I mean, before they repainted those things with schizophrenic patterns and colors). Most excellent work, Mike. It is a very charming piece of work and a solid five 5 +.

It looks like the sun peeked thru. Great catch; and the biciclist adds to the interest.
