This photograph exhibits a paved road surrounded by tall grass, bushes and trees. In the distance there is a forest and some buildings. Off to the far right side there is a body of water. There is also a person walking along the edge of the water in the center of the photograph.

The first thing I see is the red tree in the upper right of the photograph because of the color and brightness. It is also placed well in the frame (according to the rule of thirds). The second thing I see is the road, it is also placed well in the frame, and leads the eye off into the distance and back to the forest in the background.

I enjoy the color in this piece, the trees stand out, the bushes are multicolored, both green, yellow, brown and red which makes for a very interesting composition. The tall grass on the left side also has an interesting color, leading to more diversity in the piece.

The road is a very nice focus of this piece, leading the eye and helping move the focus from one place to the next.

I enjoy the person, so hidden, yet another great addition to the photograph.

I feel like the road could be better lit, I like the shadows, but the color almost feels dead to the rest of the composition. Even the background has a dull green/brown to it. I also feel like the water is strange in this piece, as the other focuses are the colors of the trees and bushes.

Overall this photograph exhibits good composition, and technique. I feel like it is somewhat a cliche photograph because roads off into the distance are amany in photography, but I enjoy it nonetheless. I feel like it has a vision, and I feel the landscape when I look at it, giving it a large Impact. I also feel like the title fits well, but could have been named something more original.

Overall: well put together piece, good Impact, and Vision, and I enjoy it much. Good Job!

Before I actually critique your pic I want to point out that I had no idea I loved Autumn so much until photography became a hobby. Funny huh?

Your picture strikes me because it reminds me of the pics I first took that made me stop and say, "Oh my God... Autumn is amazing." You have managed to capture every autumnal color out there. And for some silly reason, I think the path sets it all off with it's dark contrast.

And the buildings in the background... holy cow. You seriously couldn't have planned this picture any better. I have no idea where the picture was actually taken, but I have a whole image in my mind of the town, the people, and the countryside (perhaps one too many Fannie Flagg novels).

Your picture is great. I would be proud if this was my shot. I would totally be flashing this around to people. Very nice!

Every time I look at an autumn scene in real life I always wish there was a way to capture it as it really is, thinking a photo never does it justice. You have very nearly done so.  this is beautiful

I am going to guess this is somewhere in the country, only because of the rolling fields and hills. Aside from specific location, this looks like a perfect place to walk with all of the fall colors, the water, stone wall, etc. :)

This is beautiful. I love the colors and the way the path leads the viewer deeper into the image. I really like the framing the plants on either side of the path provide too, and how the shoreline in the background continues the curvatures seen in the path. It gives the image a great sense of continuity. Awesome work!

I like the warm feeling and the depth of it.
The only thing is that I think the the left half of the foreground could have been more interesting if it has been shot from another view or angle.
Good job anyway :)

You may be right....the shot was an accident and had no planning. I was actually running to get a shot of a passing ship, I saw the path and colors in front of me so I stopped only long enought to grab a quick capture.
