I love old trees, I love sitting under them, I love being in their presence, I love the silence you get from simply leaning against them and letting the world drift past. They are my comfort.

You have captured not only the vibrant colors of autumn here, this shot also exudes the mood of that wonderful time of year.
I particularly like the way you have used the tree in the foreground to lead the eye (along its branches going left through the picture) into the image. The tree dominates the scene, but due to the other, smaller ones in the background we experience a sense of depth in this scene.
My critical point would be the "blooming" on the left hand side of the image. This happens due to over exposure (which in this case is not surprising due to the strong sunlight). In situations like this I tend to use a grey filter to dampen that light slightly and adjust the apeture, ISO and shutter speed settings accordingly to still be able to allow enough light through to the sensor. I am not saying that this ruins the capture, it is just a point that I thought I should mention as you requested an honest opinion.
All in all a wonderful capture depicting perfectly the awesome moods that autumn can and does grant us.
What do you think?
