Iíve wanting to capture this shot with fall color or a while now. Too bad an early snow fall took down more leaves then I would have liked and of course on the only day that I had free it was overcast. While filling out the details I also noticed that I forgot to turn the ISO back down, oh well.

Love the colors. Love the DOF. I wish some of those dark branches were out of the way!

Wonderful contrast with the vivid yellow and red leaves. Interesting old bridge and nice composition.

This is a beautiful photo as to vibrant colors & fine composition! However, IMHO this is a bit rococo (i.e. Too Complex/Too Ornate) for over-all positive effect. I picked up a Rule of Thumb that seems to help me. Hope it will help you as well..."The difference between Monet and 'an amateur with a paint brush' is often Just One Stoke...More." Finally, I hope I can subtract a little "sting" by saying that there are many fine photographic qualities in this picture and an apparent passion for photography in you. Please be encouraged that you have a promising future!

Nice composition. Too bad about the sky. I'd try 'multiply' to crank up the intensity of the scene.

lovely autumn image...could have been sharper but that might be the limitation of your lens
