I probably should not have submitted this shot, since it was shot right into the setting Sun on a somewhat hazy day. But....

I tried this on 3 different monitors just to make sure, but I can;t help but feel that the green in this shot feels over saturated..

Beautiful interpretation...I really like this shot. Only problem is it looks like the colors are a little washed out. Kinda hazy looking...and where is it green right now??? Man I'm tired of snow.

A little too happy with the saturation for my taste.

Lovely colours. Not wholly on topic for me.

Crop the bottom 20% and it would be perfect.

The framing at the top is a little tight, I want to see more of the hills in the distance! It takes what could be an expansive landscape and compresses it somewhat. It's still a beautiful picture, though. :)

A really unusual example of backlighting - I really like how the low light paints the edge of each little hill in sweeping curves across the frame. Lack of sharp focus on large foreground tree canopy does marr the image for me - a deeper depth of field would work well here, in my opinion.

Could be a bit sharper but great composition.

Seems a little blurry. I like the colors, except for some trees which look blue.
