I like this photograph, you've captured the bright blue skies, brooding mountains and the trees that litter over them brilliantly. The mist/fog (?) is also a very nice touch to this picturesque photo.
The only critique I have for you is probably that some parts of the shot is a little too dark and hard to see, so maybe you should have waited for the sunlight to hit a spot where this beautiful capture can be looked on with a clearer view. (Maybe it's your take on 'the dark side of autumn though? xD)
Other than that though, this is a really lovely photograph and your entry would definitely win my vote. (:
This is my first attempt at a critique, so it might not really be top-notch, ahahha.
Thank you so much for the critique! You did well for your first one
I understand your comment/complaint on the dark areas and now have better skills at being able to improve upon them...but part of what drew me to the view was the contrasts and the rather gloomy feeling. My emotional response was why I chose this as one of my Dark Side of Autumn entries
