Amazing landscape, with a beautiful reflection.....

Lovely scene, the blown out clouds are a problem though but very hard to compensate for. A Neutral Grad filter or shooting in RAW and exposing the sky and land separately might be worth trying in the future.

Lovely scenery! The blown sky ruins it a bit. Perhaps a bit more contrast could have improved it overall? All this imo, obviously. Good luck!

Very nice colors, could have lowered the brightness in the clouds and back mountains

Beautiful picture, maybe a bit too light but the water is excellent.

Nice, but would just be sooo much nicer if the clouds would have some texture... 6 from me.

Nice mountain scape, but the foreground really leaves me wanting.

Its a shame the white is overexposed in the clouds, and the rest of the photo also seems slightly washed out. I find it's normally better to slightly underexpose and then bring up the brightness in the areas you want, because once somethings overexposed you can't get any detail back.

A very sceinc phot with good composition. I really like the feeling of depth, the lines and curves of the rocky mountains. The clouds in the sky are over-exposed - otherwise a nice image.

Lovely scene. The sky is a bit blown out on the left.

The land itself looks great, but that sky is dead. If the sky looked like that before post-processing, then I guess there wasn't much you could do; the exposure simply received too much light. As it is, the poor control of exposure in the sky really hampers the effect of this photograph.

A wonderful scene. Nice colours and composed well. I wish the clouds weren't so blown out ... possibly a grad ND filter (either during capture or in post processing) would have helped with this.

Your clouds are a little too blown out for my liking. Composition is nice, though I think I would have gone a little wider.

All of my favorite color combos here. A bit over exposed on the foreground wood, but still very nice. A (9).

The clouds are blown out. That's too bad, because the scene is very pretty.
