Another great Nordic landscape, the exposure and colours are good, I love the clouds that look totally caught in the mountains, and the foreground also looks nice... Keep up the good work!

I like your landscape shots with natural colors. I like the rocks on the flat surface in the fore ground and the beautiful mountains in the background. Nice passing white clouds on the green mountain giving a nice color contrast. The image is very sharp with great atmosphere and colors.

I know that I did critique this picture before, but I think my critique disappeared!
The lighting is superb and you have made the very most of it in this photograph. Beautiful colours, incredible detail and sharpness and perfect exposure. Your composition is absolutely excellent and the reflections on the calm water are fabulous.
