Critique Club Comment :
Note : Sorry this is so late... It's been a bad week :)

Composition : Strong diagonals and nice divisions... I like the balance between foreground, mountains and sky... Excellently done. The tree on the right is beautifully placed (although I know you didn't plant it).

Exposure : You picked a great time of day for this. The shadows add depth without distracting.

Focus / DoF : Wonderful.

Post Processing : I wonder what this looked like in color. Although that is not to say I don't like the duo-tone. I do, very much... I'm just curious what the color version looked like.

Challenge / Interest : No doubt about meeting the challenge. Even if this is in your backyard, this photo could be in a travel brochure.

My opinion : I didn't give many 10's this week, but yours was one of them. Excellent shot. Congratulations!

Beautiful shot - Ansel Adams style. Black and white works well here.

I like the way the to small foreground rocks mirror the composition of the boulders and peaks behind them, but I think it would be stronger and tie together better if cropped above the small rocks, reinforcing the strength of the boulders, and creating a more panoramic look as well.
