    I love it. The composition is great with the trees echoing the mountains. Were you using a polariser?

    It bothers me a bit the way the tree on the right is cut off. I'd bump the contrast up just a bit as well, it looks a little washed out. Lovely scene though.

    It was probably a challenge to get some detail in those strong morning shadows. :thumbup: Not bad, not bad at all, though it does tend to flatten an otherwise richly colored image. I'd like to see a bit more of the tree on the right, as well. :)

    Thanks everyone for the comments.

    Peter....no polarizer, I used an ND filter. As far as the tree on the right....what you can't really tell is another tree to its right merging into it. I thought about backing up to get it in.....but I wanted to get a closer view of the peaks....and I thought the balance worked well with just the two trees. And I personally prefer the less stark contrast here. That and the color temperature give it a warmth that resounds the serenity of the morning. There's enough detail to make it work for me.
