it's a very good shot. i love how the peak-line of the mountain is aligned to the left and not the center as some do. the foggy background pulls the viewers focus to mountains, giving it an awe-inspiring quality. the amount of focus on the mountains also gives it an amazing effect. the portrait framing does a lot for this piece and the signature is subtle, yet noticeable. i am glad to say that i can't find anything negative about it and apologize if you were looking for something to do better (because i cant find anything that i don't like)

Thank you :) The tones were really brought out by the desaturation.. Sounds ironic I know.

Having a look through your gallery I particularly enjoy your long exposure water photography. very nice stuff.

Nature really is dramatic at times. I try not to take credit for it ;) only to present them.

Ah, yes, but it still takes more than a modicum of skill to properly translate nature's drama to print!

Hah very true, I try to remain humble. Helps me focus more on photography and less about the recognition. Although input and praise always makes one feel good ^_^

Your gallery is quite impressive as well sir. I enjoy your abstracts quite a lot.
