Goulais River Aspens
I like your autumnal series very much. In this picture I especially like the difference between the bright and the dark layer. They contrast very well and highlight each other. The blurred reflection on the water is fine, too. I just wonder if the deep blue round in the sky is natural.
I think this is a really pretty scene. I like the angled composition and the wonderful colors. I think that the two images still feel a little disjointed. I tried a workshop to bring a just a bit more detail in the shadow areas. Using a polarizer on a horizontally oriented photo often results in uneven saturation in the center. I usually avoid using one or turn it off of maximum effect when shooting horizontal landscapes. I love the reflections in the water.

I've been meaning to comment on this for a while but simply didn't get the time for it...
It's a very successful blend, in my opinion. You managed to compensate well for not having a grad filter and the result is a well balanced exposure between the top and the reflection.
The colors everywhere are amazing and i just love how beautiful the aspens contrast with the deep blues of the water or sky.
Bravo and TFS
