Congrats on the Yellow, Dennis. This was my top-pick for this challenge, beautifully processed. I really should give that technique with luminosity masks a try one day.

I like the rays of the sun about to brighten the cold, blue landscape. Detail on the foreground snow is nice; I'd back it off a little on the rocks as they look over HDRed to me.

Perfect time of the day for this photograph. Composition, focus, exposure and white balance are excellent. I like the picture from foreground to the background and everything in between.
