Breathtakingly beautiful. Skilled adjustment with curves could enhance some of the details in the mountains, but the image is fine without that.

Very nice view, but the haze makes the colors seem flat - hard to avoid.

This has a real holiday snapshot feel to the exposure - fundamentally, and I don't mean in the sense of pure technique, this is over-exposed. Obviously all the detail is there, and I'm sure a histogram will tell you otherwise, but this is over. There's no sense of immediacy, no presence to it - all those colours and shapes have become so muted in the haze that definition has begun to go. It also suffers from the age old summer sunlight problem - really so unflattering on any landscape, so harsh. I see nice compositional ideas at work here however, which go some way to rescuing the shot ... but the blue-ing of everything, and the light ... 4
