Thoroughly enjoyed this shot Herman. I particularly liked the way the leaves appeared stationary despite the zoom. The gold light emphasised and cemented the challenge fit. 7.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

I like that zoom effect especially when paired with the yellows and oranges. It implies that the colors of autumn are 'zooming' in on the leaves in the center - soon the colors will change and Fall will be here. You have a good foundation but I think it still needs a bit of work to make the composition resonate even stronger. First off, the colors are a bit dark had they been more bold and vibrant yellows and oranges it would project the idea even stronger. Perhaps time of day to get better colors or enhance in PP would get those hues. Second, the branch with leaves in the center could be sharper in focus & detail. I'm guessing that this was taken without a tripod to keep the focal point rocky steady. Recommendation is to steady the camera on something that will not move during the shot or have a tripod handy.
