Went for a walk in Darley Park today trying to catch Autumn.

Nice colour contrast.
I like what you're trying to achieve here but I think this is suffering a bit from the bright sky/dark shadows problem.
There is some detail in those shadows but I think your camera's metering has been confused by the sky.
I've uploaded a mod. in which I've made some adjustments using the shadows/highlights tool, increased brightness (+13), increased contrast (+25), desaturated colours overall and sharpened a bit.
Oh, and I've straightened it up.
Hope it's OK.
Thanks for your mod and info. To me it looks too light and the colours look to pastie. This was a dark place (you wouldn't of known that as you wasn't there), but your comments are welcome and I will take them on board when I do more.
I have to agree with you re. the light. I thought that myself once I'd uploaded it.
I still think the colours could do with desaturating a bit though. I just think that I've overdone it!
I'm afraid this doesn't work for me. The composition lacks a clear focal point (am I supposed to be looking at the red tree or the yellow-green one?), the colours are over-saturated, the whole shot appears soft, the camera seems to be at an angle, and the sky has blown out to pure white. I'm sorry to be so negative but I don't see a lot of positives.
The sky blowing seems unavoidable without severely under-exposing the rest of the scene, which suggests that this scene just isn't going to work, at least in this weather, at this time of day. Frank's suggestion of finding some autumnal colours around a park bench is a good one; fallen leaves also make good autumnal subjects. I must admit, I'm having a devil of a time trying to take 'whole tree' shots that say 'autumn'.
