It was a rainy day in Hyde Park, thus suprisingly quiet for a Sunday morning.
I leaned the camera against a lamp post for stability.

Very nice symmetry and colours. I think that the large bit of foreground in front of the camera would provide a nice pattern if it was more in focus, Iwonder if then it might work if you cropped the photo horizontally just below the benches?

This is a really well composed photo I think. The colour just screams "Autumn" doesn't it?? However, maybe it would be worth straightening the horizon and sharpening a bit. Really beautiful!

Well done mate. This is the perfect kinda autumn picture. Brownish & yellowish leaves all across the shot.

Wow...for a rainy day you have succeeded in composing a day of fall warmth and splendor along that arched corridor of mature trees.Well done Dan.I have added it to my Autumn Colours theme.

Great colors. I like the composition of the upper 2/3 - I agree with timmiles to crop the bottom third just up to where the trees begin.

Beautiful image, very moody...
I wish the symmetry had been even stronger by getting the lamp precisely in the middle.
I too would have liked a crop of the bottom to make the composition more in balance but maybe a bit less tight as suggested before.
(Just tryed a WS to illustrate my words...)

Seen well, of quite beautiful colors and a super framing, it is well done.

Beautiful autumn scene.Wonder if you also took a portrait shot of the same which could be maybe less original but nevertheless impressive with those beautiful colors you captured

Very nicely done, you can alter it anywhichway but and make it slightly different but better? Seems OK to me just as it is. I like the damp but comforting feel to it.
