Perfect time of day produced exceptional colors. Your inclusion of the stream/reflection adds a lot of impact.

I like this photo. I admire how you made the focus of this shot, the mountain, really stand out prominently. Quite remarkable!

i think the imapct of this is slightly lessened by the inclussion of the river and grasses in the foreground - the fact that they're shrouded in shade is out kilter with how majestically the mountains are illuminated by the low-level sun. cropping the shot 5mm below the top of the green area might have improved composition a bit. certainly a very beautiful shot though, and the dramatic looking scenery is well caught. 7.

I love the look but the fact that the air is brown really ditracts from the beauty.

Beautiful place. Nice shot. I would have straightened it just a bit and cropped some of the sky out.

The sun is pretty on the mountain top, but the sky is a putrid green shade. Also, the foreground is too dark to be seen, but not so dark as to recede from view - I ask myself why you left it there - what is in teh foreground you want me to see, and i see nothing. crop out the swampy river and burn the foregrounf, mask the sky and change it';s hue to blue.
