This is a nice fall shot, I think you should try to saturate your colors a bit to see if you can make the rock in the photo pop a bit more and cause a bit more depth that what the photo has now. Great composition and sharpness.

Great Shot.

I think this photograph has a lot of potential. I would adjust the contrast on it as well as the curves to really make the colors "pop". I think it has the makings of being a really magical photo. You might also try using a bit of dodging and burning on the brick walls and the bridge to help them stand out more too. I love the off centre composition.

This is nice. I like all the fall colors. It kind of looks like an impressionist painting. The lady on the bridge is a nice little surprise that I didn't even notice at first.

Good idea, good composition. Contrast is low and colors seem weak.

Funny, the picture doesn't look tack sharp. Nice overall compostion maybe a slight lack of depth in the picture

Hmmm... I feel like I've seen this one before (not in a challenge, but a dramatic variation on it in the forums). If it is the same location, I like this one a lot better! Nice DOF, color. Maybe a touch of oversharpening? Not sure. I think I see some hints of it in the water and some of the brighter leaves. Might be the ISO, though, if it was set very high. Well done!
