This is Kari Ann, greetings from the Critique Club:

composition: A bit offputting with the horizon being dead center. maybe more of the path could have been included to tie in with the title better.

color: I love the neutral tones, very pleasing and just perfect for the scene

contrast: contrast could have been too soft for some, but I think it fits the mood quite well. a very peaceful and serene spot

focus: very nice and even across the entire scene presented

depth of field:
I like the use of a wide aperture, it gives the photo a soft yet sharp look.

I would suggest the fill light as well, or a bump in shadows in photoshop. perhaps it would have given this photo more kick. but a very nice sunset in the background

other: All in all, i think this was a nice image. But nothing popped off the image or made me go, "WOA!". i think that's why most voters gave this an average or lower score. But, for technical processes props, you did very well in my eye. just try different compositions when viewing a scene, and give it a whirl. Hope this helped you some, if you have any more questions, feel free to PM me. keep shooting!

I think I would have cropped out the "keep off" sign and kicked up the fill light. It is a nice setting and interesting texture.

There's a lot going on here. Would have loved to see the shot without the sign.
