I'm glad I can see the trees in the way BG. They really help to give good depth and context.

I love the detail on the bark of the main trunks and the subtle hues throughout but those few red leaves being red, the more I look at it the more they dominate, I would prefer to see them removed or subdued

They three foreground are so in-your-face they seem to be warning you off!

beautiful radiance.

Absolute WOW. Love the very soft, subtly directional light on the trunks. Wonderful enhancement of tiny bits of red down low and close that harmonize with darker shadowed blues further away. Bits of snow/ice establish credible white points while the darkest trunk spots reach to the full other end of the luminosity scale. Aspens can frustrate us with endless potentially wonderful images that turn out to be very difficult to capture in a way that matches artistic intent. You demonstrate technical mastery with an image that evokes a sense of peaceful enjoyment of a quiet bit of natural beauty.
