beautiful landscape.Great POV,but you had bad luck to do it against the sun.Thats why the photo is a bit to dark and colors seems to be a little bit subdued.Think about a polarizer,would helped to avoid such problems in the future.Putting aside these problems itīs really beautiful scene.
Have a nice sunday
