Terrific finish. I don't think I congratulated you. Outstanding shot.

Critique Club feedback -

Heh, why in the world you are requesting a critique I wonder. You have an eye for a scene, are creative and certainly a master of the technicals. This image is no exception to any of that, and the score it received reflects this as well.

My personal opinion - You did a really nice job dodging up some details in the foreground. For the sake of tonal balance, an equal amount of effort on some of the highlights in the clouds might work as well and keep the upper right portion of the shot from washing out a bit.

Great work (as usual) !

I adore this. To me this is perfect...It makes me want to throw away my camera, because this is the sort of image I so wanted to take when I first took up photography, but never have.

That sky is so dramatic and sweeps down to meet the horizon right at the vanishing point, drawing the eye through and into the image.

There is a wonderful balance between the sky and land. And the dodging on the grasses gives a wonderful sense of movement.

The person in the image, allows us to see ourselves in the image and gives us a sense of peace and awe.10
