The Tree, and the colors of autumn on the hills

Three years ago I was hanging around with my reflex, hunting for some interesting subject.
Near Salsomaggiore there's a nice road on the hillside, and if you are lucky enough to go to there at the right time, you'll be able to see some very beautiful landscapes with the sun going down between the hills.
That day I was in the process of testing my Sigma 17-70mm F2.8-4.5 DC Macro lens, just returned from customer service. This was a perfect situation to see how it can cope with hard lighting situation.
I love this shot, in the full resolution image you can count the leaves of the tree :-)
This shot was one of my first RAW image, and shooting in RAW definitely payed back: it wouldn't has been possible to craft an image like that from a JPG photo.
