Three weeks earlier would have been an incredible location with all the Aspen leaves turning. This is an iconic location and photographed by some of the best. Not expecting much on this shot, it was taken at the wrong time of day and missing the fall colors. I do like the way the snow lines the peak and am fairly happy with the shot overall considering time of day but I want to go back and shot it in the AM some time.

Wow! Such wonderful striations on the mountain range - cradled by the mountains in the foreground. Amazing!
Would've loved to see this in full splendor before those leaves fell off - I can see hints of yellow remaining. Would've loved the full mountains reflection as well - if it were possible.

I really love the serene feeling that this photo gives.

Your diagonal in the foreground along with the ones created by the mountains give a great depth. The positioning of your horizon along the lower horizontial aides this also.Very good technicals. The slight reflections that are in the calm water are also really nice addition that gives a bit of eye candy/interest to the photo overall.

The details/texture of the mountains are really great, I makes me think I can reach out and touch them. I like how you broke down the back mountain ranage as well to start and end on your verticals.

The only things I could think of that might possibly make the photo better is to either have a more contrasty blue sky to give more seperation of the sky and the mountains, or perhaps for you to step back a couple feet and perhaps reposition yourself to include the reflection of the main mountains in the lake as well.
