When the leaves fell from the tree, they formed a carpet on the walkway. After a little alteration, i managed to get the path "red" while maintaining the leaves on the tree "orange/yellow".

The colours are really nice Mark, nice reds and yellows.


The scene itself would be terrific if there was someone on that pathway, towards the end, maybe sitting on the low wall. This would give the shot a focal point. If you had someone with you at the time they might have been able to fill in. Apart from that, I would crop some of that very bright area from the top, and reduce highlights a little. The camera did s good job of balancing the darks and light areas, and colours look realistic.

Looking at the scene, I can see a few opportunities for macro shots of those yellow/orange leaves also, - especially those backlit by the sun.


Loaded a mod, and good work,


regards


Willie

Thanks for the feedback Willie.

I was alone that day so unfortunately couldn't get anyone to sit on bench. See what you mean about cropping. These comments are helping me develop and learn more about taking pics. After only 10 months experience, i think i'm doing ok, but obviously, need pointers on my composition

Willie pre-empted me. Needs my person/dog on the path. It's a good image, but I would just run the burning in tool over the wall at the far end of the path.
