This is a tree in the parking lot of my local church. The colors were so vibrant I couldn't help myself and then I remembered there was a tree challenge so I figured I would enter.

Like the colours of the leaves against the grey trunk

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

Great details in the tree trunk and the leaves. Composition is good but has potential to be stellar. I think better lighting would have been better for it could have introduced a dramatic element to the composition. I.e. different times of the day illuminate the leaves to give it a natural glow or the sun lights up the side of the trunk to give some drama in highlights and shadow. Just a suggestion but another idea that could have been added to get a little more visual appeal is to have one leaf 'falling' in the frame. Admittingly, the attempt would be far more difficult to capture both tree and leaf in sharp detail but it may be possible if a leaf is held just at the top of the frame, focused on and let go with shutter fired.

I like the trunk disappearing into the canopy of leaves, but I think the image would hold my interest longer if there was more contrast within the leaves. For my taste, the leaves are too close to being a uniform blur of red.

ETA: Since this is a minimal editing challenge, I guess that would mean taking the picture in different light.

One of my two 10s. Lovely.
