Very nice composition, but the background seems a little burned out.

A solid shot. take no notice of thr polarising/grad filter stuff. A sickly blue sky is not realistic in this. Artists stick to art great photographers take pictures!!!

The foreground rocks is out of focus. I think this would have looked better in focus in the foreground.

What strange comments. Nigel says "Appreciation/criticism of your interprtation of the subject by other people isn't required or necessary"......erm...then why bother to post photos here?
My reason for posting is to get help to improve my photography and in the 6 months I've been posting here, the help, hints, techniques that have been given have been greatly appreciated and improved my photgraphy skills immensely.
No name has suggested you ignore sacons very useful advice. A camera cannot adjust exposure for both sky and ground so this is why filters and post processing are a major part of photgraphy.
Of course, these are their opinions and they are perfectly entitled to express them. My opinion is listen to all the advice you are given and you will see a drastic improvement in your photos.
As far as this photo is concerned, I think its a very nice scene but the sky is overexposed. Try playing with the exposure compensation in your camera next time. Getting the correct exposure for the sky will result in the foreground being darker but this is easily fixed using Photoshop or Paintshop. Smile
