*Critique Club*

Ok, I just opened up a brand new photo to critique and I received this amazing image. My first impression is defiantly wow. "Moody Mountain" is great title for Dutone entry, which meets the challenge.

This is a very dramatic piece. I really like the use of layers to show the depth of the the landscape. What great timing to have to clouds or fog roll by to give more layers to the piece. The include of the foreground with the tree was something that allowed me to vote this image higher. I personally think the composition of the shot is excellent, I am very fond of a nice full frame. I see some of the comments referring to the image being to dark but I think if you went lighter the image would not be as expressive as it is.

At little bit of the subject but I just recent read an article about a training class in either Yellowstone or Yosemite that said on of the most important things was to use layers, lay out the foreground, middle ground and background and make sure you are able to tell the difference between where they fall. The teacher was using this method to capture different aspects and I think he would have really liked yours. Good work!

Nice textures. I like the mist surrounding the mountain. Your tones work well.

Best photo in the lot I think. Too bad about the mist in front of the mountain. Excellent shot.

Something in the foreground to give depth would make this photo excellent. But, I still like it as it is.

This really captures the feel of wilderness photos from the early 1900s. I love it. Good job.

Dramatic peak but I might have preferred a bit more sky, perhaps (=6)

Nice mountain. The rule of thirds could help this picture.

What I wouldn't give to live near a place like this! I like the photo but not your choice of tones, much too dark for me IMHO.

I think a bit oversharp, but a dramatic vista. I would think this would do well with some tone. 8

This is a great pic, but I actually think you've done it a disservice by converting it to duotone. I really want to see the colours in the rocks etc because the texture and contrast alone aren't enough to prevent a certain sameness to a lot of the image. Still a nice capture.
