Oligyrtos (Greek: Ολίγυρτος) is a mountain located at the junction of the Arcadia, Corinthia and Argolis prefectures in the northeastern Peloponnese in Greece. The mountain diagonally stretches from southwest to northeast, with about 35 km length and 15 to 20 km breadth. The highest point is Skipiza at 1,935 m. Other peaks stand at 1,697 and 1,695 m. Neighboring mountain ranges are Kyllini (Ziria) to the north, Farmakos to the southwest, Trachy to the south and Chelmos (Aroania) to the northwest. In ancient, medieval and Ottoman times, it was entirely included in the region of Arcadia.
Local flora consists mostly of grasslands and bushes. Pine trees and barren lands are found in higher areas.

I think you played too much with the light/shadow controls, and you also exceeded with sharpness, that created a very visible and fake edge around the mountains.
The post production, in my opinion, should always be "unvisible", and definitely not the first thing to notice in an image.

I like the well composed shot here, a very good point of view, I am agreed with Stefano about the light/shadow controls,But I always say it's a personal matter. good job anyway.

Great light that is bringing life to the landscape, and the smoke lower right is an interesting detail...
The scene is well framed, with a fine sense of depth!

Le ciel semble danser la valse dans ce beau paysage montagneux grec. Les ombres se battent contre la lumière et donnent une belle ambiance.

Great landscape and impressive sky. The clouds get some process. Friendly speaking, this view reminds me some Chinese or any Asian views. Sometime I hope to visit Greece too. With my camera, exactly.
