I took this shot behind the shop at work. This tree has been this color for about two weeks! When taking some replaced car parts to our scrap heap after an all day rain, I saw the blue sky poking through...and this tree reflecting in the puddles of our stone lot...

You could crop and remove those gates I feel.

By adding the gates, I was trying to juxtapose the beauty of nature with the ugghhh feeling of being at work.....

Funny, I was thinking that I liked the idea that you were showing the ugliness of the gates that lead you through to the beauty of nature. Very cool. Love the colours too.

VERY nicely done JR, and love the way you composed this. With the gates, and that cool reflection, it tells the story in which you had wanted to present here.
Without the gates it is just another shot of a red tree.
