    First, I think it's spectacular as-is.

    If you want to get really picky and try to make it even better, what about dodging the snow-capped mountains to make them stand out a bit more? Also, I like all the black negative space at the top--I think it gives a sense of...I dunno, majesty I guess...but I'd also like to see a version with it cropped tighter, just to see the difference.

    i don't like the slope the mountains seem to be on... i possibly would have rotated the image counter clockwise about 2 degrees and cropped straight

    other than that.... MIGHTY good shot!

    mmmm, the horizon doesn't bother me as much as the extra black space at the top. If I cropped at all, it would be right above the last streak of orange, just to pull it all in a little more. There is still plenty of sky between that top streak and the mountain.

    Gorgeous shot. What an area to live close to!!!! :D

    I think it's a perfect crop. But now there is an unfortunate vivid line between shadow and light across the mountain that looks - well, fake. I liked the darkness and the suggestion of detail in the original. Can that be toned down a bit?

    Really, aside from that, you've done a great job here. Beautiful image!
