I like how you used the forest path and it's placement within frame.

Nice diagonal leading line that guides your viewer's eyes subtly and into/throughout.


Caveats?

Lil' overexposed in parts (upper parts of tree trunks, mid- and upper right).

One quick way to check for this, prior to depressing the shutter button ... is to have a look at your camera's histogram (if that functionality is available to you).

Or..

It might be possible to recover some of the details via the photographic data using/employing an editing technique as explained by Tony Kuyper's tutorial; "Luminosity Masks".

Here is the result of a quick edit using the above linked tutorial: "Parallel Lines Meet At Infinity - Applying Luminosity Mask(s)"

That said..

Good good eye.

Still a very pleasant scene to view and the upright tree trunks, in conjunction with the diagonals captures one's attention. Brought me in for a closer look, so.. mission accomplished. :o)

Thanks for sharing this scene with us. :o)


p.s. Apologies if you do not have Photoshop at your disposal. Perhaps you might be able to extrapolate on the steps/information in the tutorial and adapt them to the image editing software you do have.

And as a suggestion, include the make and model of your camera in your accompanying narratives, as this.. might provide a leaping off point for more tips, advice, et al.

Keep shooting and happy shooting. :o)

I love the composition of this image, and the colors. Great lines and use of lines to draw the eye in!

Silence sometimes speaks to you, and you should listen.

Les said it all. ;-) I love the 'movement' of it, and the blue of the sky beyond, contrasting with the gold of the leaves and the strong shadows... Good luck in the contest.
