To Jade "Now how did davep56 get to see your comment before voting ended?...thatīs a good question, i didnīt tell him anything about your comment.
I followed all suggestions and made disappear the building, the pole and crop a bit left side...indeed the photo has improved.

    What an unusual effect. The composition really draws the eye forward, and the colours are vibrant even though the image has a lovely softness to it.

    Homely and inviting. I really want to travel down the road to discover what is at the end. What a glorious Autumn display they make.

    the photo should have won in repetition competition too

    IMHO there needs to be more cropping here.
left hand side to remove the blue ski as it doesn't add but distracts as does the building on the left.
right hand side crop out the plain area on middle right this will give the fore front lampost more of a frame
the white marks on the tree makes this an interesting picture of shapes and your eye is drawn to the back of the picture.
ps some thought has gone in to the style of the lamposts well done the local authority

    Wow! This reminds me of another photo I've seen before. After a check of some past challenges, I found the similar entry in the #125 Pathways, Indoors and Out challenge. (OK, so I'm a fanatic!) Anyway, I like the way this one focuses more on the trees. I also like the lighting on the fall-colored leaves. I think the partial building on the left should have been excluded, as well as the pole on the right. It's a shame about the paint on the trees, but nothing you can do about that. (Hopefully, the paint has saved drivers from hitting a tree.) In my favs.

    lovely leading lines, and foliage, in my faves.

    Nice shot, beautiful entrance to your town. Are those posts street lights? Its to bad you couldn't have worked the shot so that pole wasn't right in front, looks like a ton of work to try & remove it, but still very nice entry.

    Visually pleasing forms and repetition. Probably would have composed the shot without the distracting structure in the foreground, left side.

    Have to disagree with Jade on this. The avenue holds my focus, looking down the road, inviting me to explore further

    Interesting and colourful - the top left corner takes the ey away from the focal point.

    Interesting framing and perspective. The fall colors add nicely to the overall effect. One of my favorites.
