Misty, cloudy weather at the mountains and the lighting was bit hard. A lot editing needed to get contrasty and colors as I liked.

uh, oh yeah, Greetings from the Critique Club!

Initial impression: stunning image, looks like an opening shot for a scene from Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Technical: If you look for it, you can see the editing. But if you're not, well, it just comes off as a lovely shot with tons of depth and lines leading you in deeper...and deeper...into the shot. Love pix like this.

Artistic: *scratching head* what can I say that hasn't already been said? Gorgeous use of ambient light, if not for the small traces of humanity visible at the base of these towering mountains, I'd think I really was on my way to Mordor or some other fantastical place.

Overall: Uhmm....as in how to improve this picture? I can't think of any way to do so. It truly is gorgeous. May be a bit discouraging to have finished on a 5.7, but remember it's a Free Study. So in almost any other challenge it would likely have easily finished in the 6s.

Great work, keep it up!

Feel free to PM me with any questions,
