Only the Maple Tree
One of the fall foliage photography techniques I use is to fill the frame with a single tree. For this image, I ran the trunk up through the image about 1/3 of the way into the left side. The dark trunk and also-dark partially visible branches provide some contrast amongst the very red leaves of this Pennsylvania maple tree.
