This is probably the last of my last shoot for now. I really liked the contrast of the dead leaves on the ground and the new growth moss on the rock wall. This one required a bit of heavy post-processing, moreso than I'm used to using. I punched up the saturation on the orange and red hues to push up the brown of the leaves, and had to turn down the highlights almost to nothing to keep the puddles in the middle from being completely blown out. There were two hikers in the far background that I needed to crop out which and then I added a little bit of vignette to kind of close down the picture.
