Nice. Is that Mt. Rainier?

What a beautiful scene and well composed. Only complaint I can find is that the clouds are so bright and lose some texture.

If the sky weren't blown out it would be better. Also, I don't like the composition. The mountain being further left in the frame, at the expense of the uninteresting left end of the lake, and a crop just below the tree reflections would improve the shot.

Sky is a bit too light, nice reflections in the water.

the clouds really draw my eye because of the overly white areas. The rest of the image looks nice. good colours just hose clouds really distract.

Beautiful. I love the detail in the trees and the far shore. Colors are excellent. Couldn't ask for a more perfect reflection. The only think i can think of to improve this would be if the clouds above weren't blown out. They are perfect inthe reflection but lost inthe sky.

this would be great, should have gone the extra step of using spot editing, and toning down those blown out clouds and snow. Would have gotten a 9.

Nice treatment in this wide dynamic range. I think it is a very successful photo and attractive too.

These shots always drive me crazy when it comes time to post-process, but I think you did a good job. Trying to keep the sky from getting too light and keep the trees from getting too dark is not a fun task. Having the horizon line dead-center feels funny to me here...I think pushing it off-center could have added extra impact to this shot. It is beautiful, and well executed besides. Good luck this week.
