Saw this driving around with the family and almost passed it up. In reality it was fairly nondescript and very easy to miss completely. However, a half mile down the road I decided it might be worth it. So I asked my wife to turn the car around so that I could attempt my own version of this clichéd shot.

If the trunks were not SO dark this would have been perfect. That orange color is just beautiful and I love the 'path'. 7

excellent capture. The tree on the left should have been cropped off IMO or maybe zoomed in with a zoom lens for a slightly tighter crop. 8

Great composition but the trees and branches are way too dark that /don't have any details

Beautiful. I love the golden colors of the leaves versus the dark colors of the trunks. I'm giving this a 10 and adding it to my favorites.

(No vote, just a comment) Nice contrast between the color of the leaves and the darkness of the tree trunks. However it seems that a bit too much detail has been lost in the tree trunks.

Great shot. Love the location.

the road and gates detract from a good shot

Beautiful! I like how you darkened the trees and boost the leaves colors to max.
