Stunning colours, and I like how the photo includes 4 or 5 great "textures" / images at each layer as you go into the distance.
The arch is interesting.. The cut-out, jagged effect caught my eye, but I wonder if too much understanding of the context is needed in order to prefer this view to a cropped version ommitting it.

Wonderful leaf colours accentuated by the crisp contrast with the tree trunks.
A great sense of place has been created by the depth of field, and the compositioninviting you to walk into the picture through into the middle distance in centre-left.

Good shot, capturing the feel of the place well. I wonder if you could have added more detail to the background by increasing the depth of field more. I disagree about cropping trees etc off. I think it helps, and the sun & shadows on the road in bottom left emphasises the summers day nature of the scene.
