Pennsylvania Maple Tree in the Fall

I have to confess. I'm a fall leaf color addict. And fortunately I don't have to go far from home to find some of the best color.
 
However, photographing fall color can be very challenging. A picture of a complete tree may capture the color, but creating a compelling image with that tree in it takes more effort.
 
In this example, I moved in close to the foreground leaves, used a narrow aperture to blur the background and paid careful attention to what was in the background and where the background objects were placed. The result is a brilliantly colored fall photo that is, at least somewhat, unique.
