MY COMMENTS:
From a photo taken yesterday

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
I wanted the gold tree to be the focus without hitting you over the head with it. I started out with the far line of trees farther away, but ended up bringing them in and moving the gold tree farther back, closer to the tree line and adding more color to the tree line.

Great colors and texture. However, the tree is too far back to be the focus. Right now the foreground is the focus, especially with the rich texture. The balance is not quite right with the tree sitting so far back and off to the right a bit. Cropping the dark foreground and the limbs from the left would immediately bring the tree in sharp, and to distinguish it from the others the colors should be just a bit brighter.
