So I've posted some picture before (earlier this year during the winter) and thought I'd return to the same location and take some fall pictures. So here's one that I have processed. The only thing I wish I had was more color in the sky, it's just too washed ou.

Nice use of HDR (I'm assuming it's HDR). I agree that the sky could definitely use something interesting. It's not bad, but it doesn't do too much for me. I almost wish you had shot down a rail, so there would be a single leading line into the trees.

Your first shot is the better one by a wide margin, but I agree with D-B-J that shooting along the track would have made for a better shot than shooting between the tracks like you did.
Either that, or shooting from a higher vantage point so that we were looking down on the tracks more. That might have improved the shot from the vantage point you chose.
I agree too that the HDR treatment is quite nicely done if it was HDR.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Yes the 1st was done in HDR, but I don't like for them to be TOOoo obvious, so by you "assuming" it was HDR, then I'm excited about that. I always thought the idea was the idea to was to get lower for pictures, but I guess in this instance higher might be better. I'll keep working on them guys..
