Hi new CC member going to give you my thoughts I hope they help.
Things that work well in my opinion are: the colors of the leaves, the mood of the shot , i.e. fog. the building is composed nicely in rule of thirds. The reflection and the title work well together to fit the challenge while producing a good photo.
My criticism would be the leaves in the foreground I am not sure that they add to your main subject. They are quite dark and some what overpowering and distracting. I would like to see a comparative shot anyway without them. The other possibility is that with them gone you could add more contrast to the building helping to stand out a bit more. Also allowing to see a bit more of the fall colors in the distant trees. Just my thoughts--happy shooting.
CC

This is a lovely shot overall but the lack of clarity on any one point is a bit distracting to me. And the mist in the back, I would have loved to see this on a clear day but sadly Mother Nature doesn't always work with us, does she? I love the colors and the way the trees on the top end up framing the tower on the building. The border is a bit heavy and dark for this shot but not too distracting. I started this at a 5 but am moving it to a 7

Beautiful shot with gorgeous color. Your composition, using the foreground trees to "frame" the church, works well for this shot.

Outstanding composition. Dark border does great job of highlighting foreground branches.

Nice framing by the trees, and the colors are subdued and saturated, leading to a sacred mood. I do wish the tower in the back were a little clearer. But nice composition and nice work.

Great frame with the trees, lovely colours, good location - perhaps wrong time of day or just very dull, flat light. some sort of GND filter would have helped with the sky exposure to keep things more even. Great potential. (6)

Nice composition; This would be helped by a more interesting sky. Even as is, I think a haze filter and maybe polarizer would have helped.

The framing with those near-ground branches is fabulous - both in terms of framing and of contrast with the more distant trees too.

lovely colors, nicely framed by the branches, great idea to have the reflection and misty quality of light. 10

Good photo and in this case the frame draws you into the photo. Too bad the sky wasn't a little more compliant on this day. A very good photo.

Wish I was there [?] looks like a lovely spot. You did a good job with the reflection and colors. Too bad there wasn't a blue sky. Still it feel like Fall. Good luck.

Great fall colors. A bit more contrast and I would have given you a higher score. Nice though.

Wonderful contrast of foreground and background, I love the framing with the tree and the colorful reflections on water, too!
