The rolling repeating hills fading into sky make a nice contrast o the black foreground. Very peaceful feeling.

(34/38) I like the subtle gradient in the hills/mountains, and the foreground brush anchors the scene quite nicely.

Well done. I find haze shots difficult to do, and I really like your mountains. The foreground seems very muddy. Did you try shadows and highlights to try to gain some detail?
