Shot handheld on a cloudy afternoon. I tried to get a hint of autumn color to show in this photo other than the green. This is my favorite place to take photos, so I will be going back to get another shot when the leaves change. I like the vibrancy of the colors and the placement of the road in the composition.

Edited from RAW. Editing steps included:

1. Changed White Balance to Cloudy.
1. Boosted sharpness, saturation and contrast in RAW.
2. Resized for DPC.
3. Smart Sharpened and Saved For Web.

I love the subtle depth of the shadows that the path leads your eyes into. Might needs some color adjustment, but excellent shot!

Here's a tip you might want to try. Using Photoshop, open Hue/Sat and select the YELLOW channel. I find that if I edge the yellow "hue" slider just a bit to the right it makes those yellows oh so much greener and improves shots such as this, at least as far as my taste is concerned. Inviting trail there, btw.

This is a nice setting. you should think about going back and taking the same scene when the fall colors are all in...just for your portfolio.
