oh my! you want me to critique a shot with nearly 400s. so i'll try.
First of all, the shot is really nice autumn-like and colorful! And i really love the central composition in here (thought in general i'm not a huge fan of it because it's too commonly used to my taste) but in this case it's really justified, because the forest on the sides of the path make kind of walls or gate that invite me into some, say, fantasy world, the world of vikings and elves. And this is the invitation is the one i can't resist! But well, as i've noticed in EXIF-data is that you shoot at ISO 800! For me it's really huge and i never use it myself. Because it makes a photo look somewhat blurred. or it makes the pixels visible. So i always try to shoot at 100 maximum 200 and make the shutter speed more to make the shot light enough. I know it's hard to hold the camera still that long but well, it's usually worth it. Because shots made with ISO 100 look more clear and perhaps the rays of light would look a bit more distinct then. And it also gives more space for editing brightness-contrast balance in PS (or whatever else programms). I know it's questionable but i personally stick to that point.
So to conclude - i would like to say that i really like the shot and the atmosphere but a little bit clarity in this shot. Your forest-photos are really awesome! Perhaps this would be at any way helpful!
Yeah, thank you Indeed, the ISO-speed is very high, but I did not have a tripod with me and so I would have been forced to hold the cam steady for half a second or more, so I made a compromise. Of course it's a little blurry, but that's the price I got to pay for not be willing to carry a tripod with me
