Good Morning Miguel,
A very nice panorama of the plains on the Hepal-India border. Good distribution between land and mountain range. Colour contrast between these two elements is very pleasant. Nice work.
All the best

This is one of those sights which is humbling, as I work in a city I so rarely stop to appreciate the true scale and majesty of the natural world, and you have captured that perfectly here with the layers between the plains, the hills and then the huge snow capped mountain in the distance. A beautiful all encompassing view.
Thanks as always

The high snow-covered mountain on far BG, is giving good sense of scale when looking across the wide plain in front.
Green fields with agriculture-activity seen very clear on image.
Far away location, nice to learn about.

I might have played with the levels in the bg to get more darkness and density. But still a magnificent view of part of the eastern section of the Himalayas. Good sharpness and an excellent sidelight. I went across the border to Raniganj in India from here. Tfs!

Wow! This is a beautiful wide view of this landscape, I like the layers created by mountains and the wide valley with fanatstic colors

Excellent colours and clarity of the plain in front of the mountain. Though such bright Khangchendzonga is in bg, light and shade in the fg is managed superbly.

Good evening, Miguel!
I do not think you can criticize such a photo when you can feel even the smell of the air in this valley! Color is immaculate!
But I'll try ... ;) ... another...

Una hermosa y amplia vista de esta gran llanura, muy bonito contraste entre la aridez del primer plano y el verdor que le sigue, soberbias las montaņas que vemos detras.
Ideal gama de colores, en tonos naturales.
Muy buena luminosidad y nitidez.
Bien hecho. Me encanta.
Que tengas un buen dia.
Saludos muy cordiales.

What incredible and not touristic places have you visited in Nepal, this is a beautiful landscape taken with a golden light and long shallows
Striking the mountains (Himalayas?) at the back that created a good contrast
Well done, congrats

This is a lovely view. Wide open plains, terminated by ranges of mountains. After reading your note, I looked up Kanchendzonga and found out that it is the 3rd highest mountain in the world. Thaks for sahring with us such a spectacle.

a beautiful image that invites the eyes to "walk" in it. A wide, grassy plain in front of a huge mountain. In this valley we see a large number of animals, I suspect grazing cows. Located in front of the pasture a river with several watercourses, surrounded by a gravel bar bank.
Very nicely captured! It is easy to imagine being there.
All the best

the plains and the contrast of them with the mountains is fantastic. I liked the colors and the light here, sharpness isn't so nice.
gervaso (9247) 2013-10-17 9:35
Wonderful landscape, with the bright colors of the mountains in the background really standing out in the composition! Very good colors and contrasts! Beautiful job!

amazing place and the covered in fog background works mystically. However I had a similar shot which I have first publishe as it was and later I have applied a grad filter in the photoshop -darkening the upper region and it worked out even better adding some more contrast to the background.
Have a look at THIS PHOTO, which is a re-posted final version with the ORIGINAL VERSION.
