You did really good with this photo by getting the lighting at just the right time of day with the fog still pretty thick. The colors are good though I might recommend increasing the saturation just a little to help the reds and oranges appear a little more. The other thing I might recommend when shooting a photo like this where the first thought might be to set the ISO really high and leave the shutter speed at around a normal range. Do the opposite set the ISO low and the exposure high it allows you to get more detail on the photo with the limited light and it greatly reduces the graininess of the photo. That being said I like the photo a lot it has a great depth of field and you really feel like your walking there at that time and that's one of the key signs of a well done photo. Keep up the good work :)

First of all, this is a great shot! Well-composed, loads of lovely, subtle colours, and a well-created mood, suiting the mist.
It reminds me a bit of Nelleke, since she does a lot of forests in mist.
Composition wise, you've kept is simple, and effective. The track leading away is nicely positioned throughout the frame. Negative space wise, the dark tree on the right keeps the viewer in, and the brighter mist patch draws the viewer in. Well-composed shot!
Colours - good, subtle colours. You've kept a good contrast, between the crimson red, and the lighter blue, and this adds to the mood of the shot. You've also kept it subtle, but noticeable. This is good!
The mist clearly adds layers and depth to the image, leading the viewer into the frame.
One thing I like about this is the verticals that the trees provide. They seem to anchor the image, and provide some stability and grounding for the viewer. There are three noticeable ones in the foreground, adding grounding to the frame.

Technique - very good. Good clarity. Good colours. Good exposure level - slightly dark, but adds to the mood of the piece. A bit more foreground maybe would have added to the shot, but I wasn't there.... although by not using a foreground item, like a rock, it adds to the detachment and overall feel. The grounding is provided by the vertical trees, so a foreground item is not needed.
Focus point is clear, and well-led to. Good composition.

Impact - Very good. Good composition

Overall this is an outstanding shot. It has an excellent composition, fantastic technique, and great impact! Well done!! I can't really see much here that could have been improved!
