Amazing fall colors in Kejimkujik National Park, Nova Scotia, Canada.
The red colour in the leaves is caused by the usually dominant green chlorophyll breaking down to show the reddish anthocyanins within the leaf structure.
The trees are probably Sugar Maples (Acer saccharum)

Pretty dang nice.
Would it work to crop it exactly the same top and bottom? Maybe present it upside down and see if anyone noticed?

I like Autumn colours and the reflection too. I will try to post a leveled & little cropped out photo at Workshop.
PS: And as I read your discussion with Bob, I took his idea !... UPSIDE DOWN! ;-)

Classic shot; must have been even more beautiful in person. Perhaps if you had gotten there 15 minutes earlier the trees would have been more fully illuminated and there would be even more color and less of a dark band through the middle.
I'm not sure how it would look but I would experiment with creating a close-up vertical crop without the sky altogether. That would really highlight the fall colors and the details of the trees.

I think I would have straightened it a bit. but Im not sure which one will be better.

This picture (was this taken in sunrise light?!) is backing up my eagerness to go there, unforunately I made it only to Acadia NP (Maine , USA)
