Comment by andrewm:
The Critique Club

This photo has a wonderful feel to it –the towering verticals contrasting with the sky lead the eye to the caps on top in a lighter warm shade. There is an air of mystery about it—there is nothing simple about this image and everyone will interpret it differently. I feel a sort of primal religious dominance –it really is very effective. I notice people took issue with you about the darkness of the photo. I think that it may be too dark but then again the very darkness adds to the mystery and make this a hard photo to interpret. Perhaps if the blue was lightened this might have increased the contrast between the black and the sky and made the image easier to read. The shading of the blue is wonderful (and I think I see distant mountains at the bottom) and that richness must not be sacrificed if you lighten the image. Your composition is good and conveys all the grandeur of the monument.
A wonderful image that should have done better

oh my, this is the best one i've seen so far. everything is present in this picture, except possible, a time of day where the light is more dramatic.

A wonderful picture. Too bad it was so hazy. Maybe could have stood to have a little increase in the saturation, to punch up the colours a little. 9

Pity you couldn't get there at a time of day when there was sun on the back of the mountain on the right too. Easier said than done though!

Comment by Swashbuckler:
Very nice! Reminds me of the Columbia River Gorge area. The building on top of the near outcropping looks very cool. Did you use a haze filter? If not, it might have helped, but I haven't had great luck in that area. Easy 9! Swash

Comment by Azrifel:
Nice photo.
The river (?) looks interesting with those whites in it, nice background with hills in a haze. The composition is pretty strong with the use of the building at the right. It draws the eye away from the road beneath and holds the view on the middle and upper part of the image. It needs the road part of the river valley beneath, because it creates the sense of standing on an edge.
Good focus, sharpness and esposure.

Comment by HBunch:
I bet this is extra impressive in summer and fall. It's a very lovely view. I'm glad that the house isn't in the fog too. I think it's good how the cliff is in shadow, it kind of creates a balance with the white fog. The fog mutes the colors, but I like it that way. Lovely angle and framing/cropping. I think I have seen photos of this before, but there seemed to be extra brush or something in the forgroud. Anyway, nice shot. Good luck in the challenge.

Looks like a post card shot. I wish the building was larger.
Improvements: Maybe a haze or UV filter whould help eliminate the blue haze making the background more visible.
