    Minimalistic

    Good composition

    Suggestions:

    Leaves in foreground are a bit bright/light.

    Strengths:

    You've communicated that feeling that one gets on seeing a blanket of colours leaves. Nicely managed exposure: the shadows are lifted enough to see the textures, but maintained enough to provide those interesting shapes and leading lines.  Very good job interpreting the theme; it is a tight landscape but by focusing tightly, you've created a nicely simple image.

    Suggestions:

    It would be nice to be able to see some of the texture on the tree trunk.  If the recording has the detail, maybe some selective lifting of that shadow, just a touch.

    The geometry of the sun and shadow, with the strongly lit triangle in the foreground drawing the eye right to the tree, which also has beautiful warm light, is perfect.  Wonderful rich colour. 

    Suggestions:

    There are three doughnut shapes in the top right that suggest some cloning was done.  Always good to grab a bit of texture from elsewhere in the image to break up any obvious repetition like that.  Still a fave!

    The carpet of colour is my favourite aspect of this photograph! The patterns of sunlight draw the eye in towards the tree and then then keep it in the frame with the compelling texture of the leaves! You've done an excellent 'take' on a classic autumn theme!

    Suggestions:

    I like it as it is.

    Beautiful capture of the carpet of leaves, with very little else making it a strongly simple image.

    Strengths:

    Well captured display of autumn colours.  Isolating the trunk makes it more solitary.

    This carpet looks so nice. Excellent fit to the theme

    Suggestions:

    With to see leaves muck clear and would like to play with cropping a bit.

    Otherwise, it is a good image
