I was playing around with different exposures. I settled on this one with the Pagoda backlit to downplay it a little, and the exposure set to bring out the fall foliage in the background.

@Self-Indulgence: Thanks. The top really was a silhouette until I lightened it in Photoshop. It just seemed to dark since it was not dark all the way down.

Beautiful job with a very tricky exposure! Those colors are stunning!

@Tracy: Thanks, Tracy. I still was not happy with how dark the pagoda was at the top, so I worked on it a little in Photoshop.

@Mj007: Perhaps it is a tiny spot of Japan right here in Texas. ;-) It's always so peaceful there, and it always makes me want to see Japan!
