|Landscape class exercise "analysis" (more critical than the usual DPC comment):
Hits. Excellent shot, good use of layers of color, i.e., I love the subtle changes in color across the photo.
Misses. It seems to me there are some things to try with this photo that might make it even better. I like the bush in the foreground, but covering it with my hand, there's a suggestion that getting rid of it by cropping or cloning might enhance the layering effect of the scene. Hard to tell at this resolution too, but perhaps some noise reduction (small amount), might help it pop a little. Lastly, I can't really tell here, it might be a total illusion, but it gives the appearance of being pitched to the left a bit. See the bright light just below the trees for my reference point.
