Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that contributes to the challenge well

What a lovely contrasting landscape you have in the background, against that sky it works really well. I'm not so happy about the foreground, it feels as though it would benefit from more exposure. However, I am imagining this scene without any of the cacti, for me that simpler image would work stunningly. Having said that, there are still a couple of problems, there is evidence of banding in the sky and the hills and cacti have sharpening halos.
