Very nice scene and a nice variation on framing from what I've seen thus far. May have pushed the saturation a little too much as I find the blue/cyans a bit heavy. Adjust the saturation down on those colors and see how it looks. Exposure for this scene is challenging with the extreme highlights. Couple of areas are totally blown out (lost detail). All JMO of course. :-) Good luck in the challenge.

Cool shot and a beautiful place for sure. I could be wrong and forgive me if I am but this appears tonemapped. i feel that it lacks a bit of contrast in the shadows.

Great shot. Perhaps cropping the the gap on the left would be better?? What a beautiful place.

This is well composed. It appears too contrasty on my monitor...

At first looking at this gave me a sense of isolation but then I noticed the contrail in the distance. It reminds me of when I'm backpacking and in the middle of nowhere for a few days. Just as I forget what's on the other side of the mountains a jet flies over. The snow in the desert is nice too. Lets me know it's winter. Good job.
