    Thank you for all your comments. As you noted I had a terrible time framing this photo. I had to take it from this position as moving was not an option.
Forkcandles: Cropping from the right was certainly an option. I could have cropped more there. Taking out the brick wall was tried but took out the best colours in the photo also, and left me with too much sky.
Mrs Sawyer: The problem on the left side was that there was a branch coming out at right angles from there and if I left the curve in, I then had a branch going out of the pic. In the end I decided to use the same shape for each branch.
wrosenthal: Highlighting the right branch would have added to it . Thanks for that.
Cookiejar: You get the biscuit.

Thank you all for your comments. Very much appreciated.

    Colourful Chaos, beautifully shaped leaves makes the picture. I like the way the branches echo each other somewhat. For me the colourful mould on the brickwork enhances the image. Lovely.

    I love the colors here. I would like to see the curve of the tree on the left that is missing. The brick wall probably should have been cropped.

    Amazing Shot. I liked the vivid colors & great exposure. It's #1 in my favorite

    I think the sky is overpowering the colour. Perhaps a different crop and get rid of one of the large branches. You have captured the beauty of fall though - certainly right on theme too.

    I chose this as a favorite for the wonderful color, although it seems a bit busy to me. If the bare branches were emphasized a bit more, as in the right foreground, I think the shot would be stronger.

    I would have cropped tighter to the right hand upright branch and again more cropping on the left and the brick wall brings nothing to the picture
