I like this photo, Hung. I like the Autumn colours of the trees and in particular, I like the way the roadway "snakes" diagonally across the image. It leads the eye through the image. Well done   Posted: 01/06/2022 15:57:51

Interesting view giving the appearance of being taken from the air or a cliff, with transitions from light to dark trees. A question might be if to crop the trees on the right slightly but keeping the road on the third line and the upper end of the s-bend on the right.   Posted: 01/07/2022 09:30:05

I like your contrasting colors of the fall against the evergreens and the curve of the road leading me into the picture. My suggestion would be opposite of Piers pertaining to cropping. I would suggest changing to a square format and cropping the left side almost to the road. This would then eliminate the small bright growth on the left that is fighting for attention instead of the scene below. Wondering where this was taken...   Posted: 01/07/2022 11:31:50

Hung, I wish I could have been along with you when (and where) you took this. I love the setting.
Like others, my main compositional critique references unneeded foliage along the bottom and the Left side. Cropping in from the left to the edge of where the road starts, then cropping up from the bottom the eliminate the foreground, leaves the same (or similar) dimensional ratio to the remaining image.
Also, since it is the fall colors that attracted you to this scene, I would accentuate them with basic Lightroom tools of Clarity, Texture, saturation to make the colors POP.
Well done!   Posted: 01/13/2022 19:42:47

I think Shirley's idea about going to a square format. that keeps the winding road and takes away distractions in the foreground. That way the image becomes one about wandering and not so much about fall foliage which might not be your intent here. I love the perspective you have chosen and that road makes me want to wander there!   Posted: 01/14/2022 09:00:24
