Fall is the best season in Massachusetts

This was shot on a walk around town today.  Leaves are just starting to turn around here, but some trees go much earlier than others.  Should be a good month for photography; hopefully I'll be able to get some in after raking.

This was actually the table decoration at a Mexican Restaurant on Sunday - not the usual location for flora, but hey - I had my X-Pro1 and 60mm Macro with me.

The vivid blue OOF backdrop is actually someone's T-Shirt.

Re: I don't know this flower

Nice shots. DoF is very shallow as you have used a wide aperture (F2.8/5). Would suggest using a flash so that you can use a smaller aperture (F11/16) to get deeper DoF.

Sorry, my bad. This pic is from October 2011, not 2012. My apologies.

Nice autumn colour. No problem that it was taken last year.
