The shot is warm and tones inviting. The hills provide the extra beauty, when captured with a lovely POV.
Wish you have captured this image a few seconds earlier, as this would help in keeping both the human figures full in frame without the inadvertent cropping.
My regards Farhat,

Salam Farhat. I can see the reasons for your title- what a vantage point from which to admire this beautiful land. Lovely colours and light. Regards. Klaudio.

The town makes a good anchor point as we gaze across toward the distant hills. I like the soft subdued lighting and pleasant warm tones. Also, the little wispy clouds hovering over the hilltops.

Good evening Farhat,
A fantastic high-altitude mountains view, thin air but very clear view inspite of the slight mist, and wonderful dark green ridges.
Village houses on foreground gave extra vivid colors to the whole.

Hello Fabbs, it's a magnificent panorama from Darjeeling, good exposition and colors, a must see hill station of eastern himalayas, regards

A unique and special part of India for sure an one I have been fortunate enough to visit. Good sharpness and nice repetition of thickly wooded hills. I may have blurred the sky. Being careful not to blur the horizon or clouds of course! A good high pov across the valley and the fg houses add depth. Tfs!

Beautiful panoramic view of valleys, mountains and the town, I like the light and these little white clouds over the tops

I don't blame you...beautiful hills, extraordinary view, fabulous color!!

Hi Farhat, great photograph of this interesting and beautiful landscape, well composed and captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, light and color. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good morning and happy weekend.
Best wishes from southern Spain.

Although there are no snow-covered Himalayan peaks seen here this is still a fabulous view of the several rows of mountain ranges streching into the distance. In the foreground there is an interesting view of the outskirts of Darjeeling where the houses cling to the steep hillside. I am sure nobody ever gets tired of this view, and you have captured it with very warm and strong colours.
jcpix (6456) 2013-09-05 15:02
Splendid view, how in the world could anyone ever get any work done in this setting...i would spend the entire day just gazing out of the window! :) Such warm tones over the landscape, and a beautiful blue sky to contrast. All very pleasing, this looks to be a wonderful spot far away from the busy stress and noise of the city. A very nice composition with the foreground corner anchoring the frame, and thus allowing for a wide open look over the mountain ranges. Quite beautiful indeed! Have a great day ahead. Take care.

Good frame and colours.
I like light,

Have a nice afternoon

This was from outside your office? Wow and wow... I can see from my office a carpark and some rooftops. Your see the rooftop of the world :) A stunning scene, filled with magical light and color. The composition is superb, as the town spread over the hill and down into the shot looks truly wonderful.
Have a great weekend

this view is very beautiful, you were lucky to have the chance to contemplate it every day and you've captured it here in a great way. I love the sweeping depth as well as the depth and richness of the colours. What you're showing us in this picture still holds a sense of mystery and creates the wish to know more about this place. I like very much the atmosphere and the juxtaposition of the settlement in the foreground with the sparse hamlets in the mountains ahead. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

You're capturing well this landscape by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see a lot of dwellings which stands on the steep slope of the mountain and mountain's layers under one's view. The deep green of mountains is kind to eyes and it harmonizes beautifully with colorful dwellings.
krzychu30 (12605) 2013-09-07 9:40
admiring this view I can easily understand why these are your beloved hills.They´re beautiful and provide really amazing view.
I like your composition and nicely division between FG with the village and mountains in the distance.
Also light and colors contribute to the success of your composition.
Have a nice weekend
nikkitta (8869) 2013-09-07 12:39
Unique panoramic view of the famous summer station (english times), read a lot about it
Is so beautiful as i imagined
Great capture with a good POV
Quite agree with you for the title election
annjackman (15473) 2013-09-07 22:53
This is an amazing landscape. I like the receding mountains behind the beautifully lit FG with the interesting houses clinging to the mountainside. A fascinating place in a glorious setting. Perhaps it would be nice to see a little more of the FG and a little less sky in the composition. Thanks for showing such a wonderful place - a lovely image that has been well taken.
Kind Regards, Ann

a really pleasant scenery from the hills with the endless view to be so excited.The warm afternoon light as falling on the hill makes the image so inviting to visited someone.
eldancer1 (20674) 2013-09-13 7:58
Beautiful landscape! And nice capture of this village with awesome view of the mountains. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.
maloutim (9455) 2013-09-14 2:27
I understand these are your beloved hills and I can just imagine what it must be like living or working on this slope in the foreground.
Either it gave you a lot of inspiration for your work, or stopped you from doing any because of spending your time admiring the view :-)
Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend.
PS. I have added a WS to reduce the noise, especially in the sky.
adores (30773) 2013-09-16 15:14
An incredible place! The view is just magnificent with all the mountains around and I like this diagonal of little houses. Colours are very good!
marina7 (7160) 2013-09-18 5:27
amzing place captured in beautiful light. The only thing is some visible pixelation on the sky, perhaps due to excessive post-processing. Other than that absolutely lovely picture.
COSTANTINO (44071) 2013-09-19 22:55

Well I wish I had an office window view like this! I am very jealous! What a magnificent panorama! Fantastic!
Romano46 (11339) 2013-10-09 10:36
E' incredibile pensare che fuori dal tuo ufficio, sia pure temporaneo, tu abbia potuto godere di una simile vista, ci crea una dose di invidia.
Trovarsi in un luogo così bello, con la vista su montagne che raggiungono altitudini elevate e attirano visitatori da tutto il mondo, non è cosa da tutti e bene hai fatto a proporlo con questa fotografia che si fa notare per la composizione avvastanza curata .
Ciao e buona serata.
photoray (6622) 2013-10-31 14:41
Your Beloved Hills look more like mountains to me?
I like the positioning of the hillside village perched precariously, then the layers of mountains fading into the horizon.
adidas5nb (2821) 2013-12-01 18:52
love the pov.nicely done.
