Greetings from the Critique Club!

First impression: Nice photo but it seems to be a bit busy and I find my eyes flitting from place to place never really settling on anything in particular.

Composition: Your composition is good, nice use of the rule of thirds and leading lines to guide the eye around the photo.

Technicals: Your technicals are good as well, great control of shadows and, especially, the highlights.

Final Thoughts: I feel that you have gone a little too far with Topaz color boosting, giving the photo an very overprocessed feel. And I really wish that that dark cloud in the top left was not there.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.
