This is a very strong image with the precise translation of the words "silence and loneliness"

Great forest wood scenery.
9/10
Composition
& perspective
The description by the photographer (silence and loneliness) is very well captured in this image. The forest path guides the viewers nicely into the woods.

Use of camera,
exposure
& speed
I do not know what type of lens the photographer used but the F5 focus number provides a nice out of focus background what adds to the mood of the scene.

Like I mentioned under the point "Use of Camera" I think the chosen focus number provides the image with a nice fuzzy background that adds to the mood.
9/10
Color &
Lighting
Although the overall image looks a bit dark I think it fits very well to this forest scenery. And the dark sides creates a kind of vignetting that helps the viewers (next to the chosen composition) to look into the path.
9/10
Focus
The focus point is very well chosen as it rests on the leading line of the image.

How to improve your photo
1.
The overall image looks a bit dark. To create a nice lighter foreground I would have lowered my angle, gone down to my knees. Then you could have sharpened some of these nice leaves so as to guide your viewers into the image along the forest path .
2.
Use a tripod, this way you are more flexible with your camera settings and you can take sharper and longer exposure shots.
3.
Although you wanted to emphasize loneliness and silence, sometimes you can create a stronger images by adding some elements, like a contrast color : some red leaves in the front or a person (with a red jacket on) in movement or a dog walking half way through the path.
