While out looking for local fall color, I caught a glimpse of the tractor while driving. I turned around and started shooting.

nicely seen Michael!
I like the tractor alone with such a beautiful colored background.

Either the tractor or the tree would have been a good enough subject but to have both together is fantastic.
A really good shot Michael!

A smiley for the maple tree in its full glory!
IMHO, a wider crop and adding some more contrast would enhance this very well spoted scene!

Early fall is always a good time to shoot nature, as you show here. Great colors and the tractor makes a nice subject, even when it is competing against the tree for the viewer's attention.

The colour of the tree is superb but of course it is the tractor that really makes this picture. The light body of the tractor stands out well against the dark background and positioning in the bottom corner really does make it look small and lonely.

Good eye, it was certainly worth turning back for this image. I agree with the others, that tractor has a lot of personality on its own, but the combination with the tree is beautiful. As opposite to the tractor, the leaves don't seem to be very sharp, was it windy?

A good color mix between the big tree and the tractor. We can see how big the tree is, since you put the tractor for comparison.

Beautiful fall shot. The tractor is a great compo device here, and also of interest. It looks in use still by the state of the tyres and paintwork, but too delapidated to be in someones collection. It's a 1950s British Fergy, probably made in Coventry where I work. What a strange thing to find in New England.

You are lucky, because your country there are so many beautiful views. Beautiful autumn.

The tractor makes a sore thumb under of a meadow view in this red autumn shot. Anyplace else, the tractor is just a dreary mundane and nonedescript. But standing under the red tree, it looks so comically obedient don't you think. Almost cute.

Looks like you have been to some truly magical places, your portfolio has a very soothing and relaxing vibe. I particularly like this shot, with the contrast of colour and aged feel.
