    They look pretty good. What I don't understand is why you shot them at such low aperture values when you clearly had enough light to go to F/8 and get the best image quality possible.

    Edit: It seems that your EXIF info for your shots on your website are all the same...

    It's nice, but not really anything special. The sky in the top left-hand corner is completely blown out and it sort of ruins the picture for me.

    I think there are other pictures on your site from this shoot, that are better. I especially like #1, #5, #6 & #7. the colours and composition are better than this pic.

    Like cookie said, the clouds are blown out on that pic. Some of your other ones are better, though. You should mention that you need to click the image to get to the gallery - its not obvious at first.

    I guess I'll be the only one who doesn't "mind" the blown out clouds. Other option is to expose for the sky a bit better but underexpose everything else. I guess it'd be the perfect time for an HDR. :)

    And I really like photos #7, #8 and #10 the best. I don't know why I like photo #8 at all, and I'm sure others can't, but being Canadian, I know what it feels like to just look up at the trees and see the beautiful coloured leaves above you. I guess I just like the feeling from these photos, including #8, which isn't the best photo in a number of ways (the photo is blown out in several areas, but there's not much you can do about it.

    Photos 1, 6 and 9 are also nice.

    Thanks for sharing these. It's a fun time of year to be taking pictures (fall), and it can be deceptively tricky to get the colours to pop especially when its so bright out - instead things tend to look washed out. You might try some more shots on a day that isn't so sunny. I'm having the same challenges myself, and we've been "lucky" in Toronto to have lots of overcast days lately :)
