"Autumn's Palette"

Thanks everyone for participating in last month's creative challenge to capture the cozy, nostalgic essence of Autumn! We loved seeing how you incorporated autumnal colors, themes, and concepts into striking images and hearing the stories of how they came to be.

Sifting through the many fabulous submissions, a few photos really leapt out at us for embodying the warm hues and magical spirit of the fall season. We're delighted to highlight these standout shots that evoked autumn's essence so beautifully.

Let these transportive images inspire you as much as they did us. We can't wait to see what you create for next month's creative challenge!

Please enjoy this selection of talent-spotted photos showcasing autumn's splendor!

Amazed by this piece by @julianicolaHere she captures @gwynblath’s fairy silhouette bathed in the glow of sunrise! Loving her choice to pair of our ‘Sunset in June’ photoshop action in this scene, and the touch of enchantment it adds to this already radiant moment!

enchanting set by @julianicola!
"I wanted something simple but with the wow effect so I invited a hedgehog to my photoshoot. Of course I ask the owner if it will be okay for him. I want to show some emotions and textures occurring in autumn. Your actions helped me achieve the editing. I used Sunset in June and Once Upon a Time."

"Happy Autumn! I had been waiting all year to visit stourhead park in the UK especially to visit the Autumn colours. We managed to visit two weekends ago and it did not disappoint. If you get a chance I definitely recommend a visit!

These photos were colour toned with a mixture of the Inferno and Into the Woods actions, which really helped to bring those autumnal colours to life!

Incredibly honored to feature @mennatullah__hossam‘s work with the captivating @kamiliaelkayar

"This was my first session during the fall edition of @plenermagicgardens.
If I were to say that there are real fairies in the world I would immediately point to @fog_in_the_gardenShe is like a chameleon and can impersonate any magical, most wonderful being.  Because the truth is that she is one of the most wonderful being I have met. Beautiful with an even more beautiful soul. I'm glad that once again we could create magic together."
