Great choice of subject for this challenge, and nicely framed. You've done a lovely job of bringing out the full tonal range, and the effect is striking. As some voters suggested, you might have toned it down a bit, but that's largely a matter of taste.

In the realm of constructive criticism, I have a couple of things to offer perhaps for next time:

- The focus looks a little soft. I don't know if this was intentional, but I see that "Sharpen" is in your PP notes. Do you ever use Unsharp Mask? I find it does a much better job about 99% of the time. Try a radius of .3 to .5 pixels with a threshold of 0.

- The white lines on the cinema-style border are a bit bright. A more neutral gray would have had the same effect without drawing the eye out of the frame.

A solid entry in a difficult challenge! Looking forward to seeing more landscapes from you.

Interesting texture in the mountain. I'm not crazy about the shrubbery on the right or the heavy horizontal border. It makes me feel as if I'm peering through a slit.

Knowing the voters, I'm sure you're getting pinged for the shrubs, but I like both the framing, scale, and perspective they give. A lovely image!......7

The contrast is a bit too strong for my tastes but still like your picture. I bet it's beautiful and peaceful.
