No doubt a wonderful image, but I can't say that the duotone does it justice - the scene looks so beautiful and well captured I want to sweep the duotone away and see the excellent photo beneath.

I like this because of the wonderful fog and the dimension it gives to this landscape. Composition-wise, I felt my eye being drawn both to the mountains and to the line of fog shrouded trees in the foreground. Neither stood out as the main subject over the other. I'm not a big fan of square crops and I will only use one myself when nothing else seems right for it. Not sure if it was the best here or not. I'd have to see the uncropped image. The overall appearance struck me as similar to a shot I posted in a side challenge recently.

The gold tone might be a little strong for some viewers, but my own entry is a rip-your-eyes-out-of-the-sockets color, so who am I to nitpick that aspect?

In spite of some aspects that did not work for me, this got a reasonably high vote from me because the aspects that I did like worked very well for me.

Very few images would work well for me with this color, but this one surely does! A morning ripe with promise. Love the rays of sunlight in the low-lying mist.

Unusual colour, the yellow, but it really works here.

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

At first the sulfur yellow is a bit jarring...but as I study the image further, the more inviting it becomes...the softness, the light...all come together to set a calming mood...and the yellow becomes golden.
