Are you any clearer from the comments whether the inclusion of the figures was a good thing? Just goes to show how tastes differ! Keep up the top-notch work.

Too bad those people are in the picture.... It disturbs a bit

This is genuinely original, absolutely ethereal. I hope its subtlety does not work against it. 9

No amount of editing could have created your perfect exposure and timing of the light.
This is superb..

Wow... I didn't even notice the people at first, the light on the trees and mist totally captivated my attention. Having the people there is just a bonus, the shot is really strong on its own. 9

7 - Very nice, but, Criticism; in my opinion, whilst the people and dogs add an element here, the 'serenity' in this shot is broken by their presence, ie; I think it has more potential without them. Also, and no idea how, but some 'tweaking' with the colors or lighting, to try to enhance those rays, would have also made this even better in my opinion. Depending also what you had to work with, maybe a little more 'foreground' too, if possible. edit:typo

Light, composition, story, color, It has all the ingredients for a great image but just falls down a little. Almost great deserves a 9

The softness of the light with the figures and the dogs is really nice. Makes me want to go there.
