I would love to see this without the road. It pulls focus to the yellow lane stripe.

The lighting is perfect for setting off the autumn foliage and the mountain behind, and you can't do much better than complementary colors for appeal so the brilliant orange and deep blue work well. The curve of the road leads the eye into the frame very nicely. The image is nicely processed though I do see a slight halo in the sky, especially on the left. Since the sky is the least interesting feature, I would look at a landscape crop that loses about half the distance between the peak and the top of the frame and a bit off the bottom if necessary.
