The contrast seems a little harsh and unpleasant here, and also some of the closer pine-trees look burry. A windy, sunny day perhaps? I might suggest waiting to take this photo on a day where the sun wasn't quite so harsh, and the wind had died down... just a thought.

the high contrast is great and the perspective is very solid - but the image seems oversharpened in a very significant way and the sky is blotchy in an unusual way

The textures are muddy. Camera shake? That would surprise me, because it looks like a brightly lit scene, but something's amiss here.

This would have been great in the Ansel Adams challenge. Nice tones.
