Greetings from the Critique Club:

What can I say, this is a beautiful landscape. The rainbow in the clouds on one side provides a wonderful contrast to the blue sky on the other. If one was to nit-pick, I would say that since it was an expert-editing challenge you could take out the bit of foliage in the foreground to the left of the frame.

Amazing sky so dramatic, bumping up to 10.

very well balanced. I wish you removed the branch on the left. it weakens the power of the wide scope and makes the photo feel local; if you know what I mean 8

Nice capture! The mid-ground trees seem a bit indistinct; otherwise, a beautiful shot.

Impressive rainbow. The trees look very unnatural though, with little detail.

Nice capture of a rainbow. Too bad you couldn't have brought the greens out a bit more. 7

Great capture. I know this is expert editing and I shouldn't trust my eyes, but I do hope that the rainbow is real and not added in post. The captured transition between the stormy and the clearing sky is very well done. - 8

Cool. The trees look like paintings. Great Shot!

I like the natural colors, but the trees just left of center look too processed, and the bottom of the rainbow maybe just a little too bright. Otherwise very nice image.

pumping some green into those trees, adding some contrast would have given this the kick it needs

A bit too much sky and not enough land
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very nice, but it I think it would have been better if the tree on the left part had been cropped or composed out.

nice shot, but too soft for my taste. texture on the trees is lost.

On first look, I really like the image. But on the second, I realize that something is really wrong with the trees, almost like they've been...smushed. My guess would be over-processed, somehow. It's too bad, as it does detract from the overall experience.

Oh, this is wonderful! Great Photo!

urm - the trees look like they have been flattened, you lost the detail in post somehow :(

need to remove tree on the left, and increase contrast and hue to create more impact. wonderful rainbow.
