Here is a Canon g11 photo sample of fall foliage taken in October of 2012. If you include objects tat are both close and far from your viewpoint in your composition, it creates depth in your photo and gives the viewer's eye a path to follow when looking at the photo.
One of my favorite places to go to get away from the computer and the cell phone is only two miles away from my home office in Ceres Park in Mantua Twp, New Jersey.
The zoom lens on the G11 gives you the opportunity to shoot both traditional wide angle landscapes as well as photographing "flatter" compositions using the telephoto setting.
The rule of thirds is a good guideline-There are no rules in photography that can't be broken-to use when shooting fall landscapes. In the photo composition above the grass provided a visual base and an element in the photo to contrast with the colors of the trees.
In the photo below, I intentionally shot the table a little off center to give the photo an overall balance and also to create 3 fairly equal areas of green to contrast with the red foliage in the background.
I titled this page Canon g11 photo sample fall foliage because that's really all this simple post is about, afew nice sample images for you to enjoy, plus a few general tips on shooting fall foliage with a point and shoot camera like the G11. It was a nice warm day early in the fall, overcast but still a pleasant day to be outside and photograph the Fall foliage.
I try to have a camera with me wherever I go.
In this case it wasn't my Canon 5d Mark III or my Samsung cell phone camera. The G11 is classified as a premium compact camera by Canon.
The G11 is still capable of taking quality photographs (I can shoot in "raw" mode too) and this Canon compact fits snugly in my pocket. I consider these two photographs flat images. Normally I like to show more depth with landscape photography but I focused on the colors and patterns.
I enjoyed taking photos with the Powershot G11, but have upgraded to the far superior G1X Mark II since this article was originally written The 1.5 inch sensor gives superior quality for a compact camera.
Keep shooting, keep learning, keep improving.

Bruce, I have a Canon G12 where the lens is stuck in the open and extended position and does not retract. The camera shuts itself off and says that there
