Greetings from the Critique Club...

Landscape photography is much more difficult than most people realize. The scene before you in this photograph is rather breathtaking, but what seems to happen here is that the image itself doesn't communicate that level of awe to the viewer. I have been in this same situation many times. I look around at my surroundings and I'm simply overwhelmed with what I see and feel. My camera, on the other hand, can't seem to recreate the feel of the breeze on my face, the smells in the air, and the adrenaline rush that I feel while standing before the subject. I suppose an image like this will always have more personal appeal to the photographer who experienced the photograph than to an arbitrary viewer such as myself who looks through the digital window of my computer screen and tries to recreate the same experience.

Wow! That's some mountain. :)

Wow, I find myself staring at the grandeur. It's almost a disjointed feel, like two completely separate scenes. I might have played with the contrast a bit in post-processing to see if the colours might "pop".

I like how the mountain is shrouded in the fog. Nice.
