    When I think of Autumn, it brings back memories of the times I missed other peoples conkers and ended up smashing mine into their hand :)

    i kinda like this although i think it might be better if there was less aka just the one conker.

    I originally shot it with the single, stringed conker, but it looked a bit bare, tbh. I don't have a macro lens unfortunately and the photo above is the limit of the autofocus range, although I could zoom in a bit further I didn't think the sole conker had enough about it. With the additional conkers, it adds something rather than takes away from the photo, imo.

    Balls, just noticed, I put the wrong tag on. It should have the potm tag instead of photos. I'm not sure if it can be changed, I can't seem to find a way to do it.

    btw, thanks fathazza! After looking through (admittedly good) photos of trees/leaves/sun hitting leaves photos I thought I'd try something a bit different :)

    Thankyou mod for changing the tag :thumb:

    Press 'Edit' then "Go Advanced" and select the correct tag beneath the text box :)
