I love the light in this image. You kept the detail in mountains shadow.

Very nice "grand" landscape. A few clouds would draw some more interest, but nice nonetheless.

Absolutely stunning! This couls easily have been an AA print. The light hits the mountain perfectly to give it good depth. Excellent DOF on everything as well which is also one of AA's trademarks. 10+

Nicely rendered in all respects except that the sky is not working for you at all. A quick mask of the sky area followed by a black-to-transparent gradient laid over the sky on a multiply layer would have done wonders to increase the visual depth of the image and take it to the next level.

I took the liberty of doing this very quickly; the mask was not refined, so there's a little bit of edge haloing, but this can easily be avoided working carefully at higher resolution. What do you think of the change?
