Hi Keith! This one is beautiful, really great colours. With this perspective, you are also forcing the viewer to focus much more on the distant features, rather than the near (as in the first photo). To reinforce this, I might be tempted to crop a little off the bottom.
The only other thing is that the horizon is a little tilted to the left.

I liked the first one already and this one is even more stunning! Unbelievable that such sceneries actually exist...
But I also agree with Piotr about the slight tilt to the left.

Nice shot, Keith. I like this one better than the old one. It is a bit dark but overall very nice landscape shot.

A very attractive landscape shot! The little wooden bridge makes it a winner for me. It invites me to walk over it and nextly to let me focus on the high mountains... Piotr's suggestion to crop the bottom a bit would intensify the presence of the bridge... Very well done!

beautiful image, very clean and very clearly, really perfect.

This is a great shot, but if you ever get the chance to go back I'd get closer in to the bridge and put it off centre in the foreground, and then maybe try it in black and white. This location has huge potential, and you've done a great job.

Another pic of your collection of the beauties of Canada.

bonjour, je viens de parcourir tes photos superbes, mais pourquoi cette augmentation de couleur dans cette photo qui pourrait-être plus naturelle
sans y ajouter autant de contraste...merci de me répondre....ce n'est que mon petit avis perso.

Breathtaking shot very niced composed. It is nice to see the location of the bridge you more recently offered with the view of fog laden hills. I appreciate the give and take I witness on this photo and how you've worked with it. That makes this site particularly valuable for novices such as myself. Keep up the good work.

Love this photo! The colours are beautiful!
It´s so alive, you can almost feel how fresh the air is.

It's a beautiful shot. Don't take the criticism that I'm giving as anything that takes away from that statement. I just operate from a position that generally the best could be better.
First, The shot calls out to me to be a bit wider. The area on the right feels a bit cramped.
Second, I think you had your polarizer cranked up a bit too high. The sky has gone a bit black on you in the upper left. The sky in general is a bit intense.
There's a small dust spot in the right sky that should be cloned away.
Try using the Shadow/Highlight tool to pull a bit more detail out of the dark mountains on the right and mid-left. The black is a bit overdone for my taste.
Try a small crop off the bottom, just enough to loose the dark left corner. (Perhaps S/H will decrease the impact of this area.) Right now my eye is pulled to that corner and I find nothing there.
You've got a small halo along the mountain/sky transition. Over-sharpening on your part or perhaps by the site software is most likely the cause.
Someone has already mentioned the slight tilt.
Overall a great image that could be made an even better image with just a little work.

The scanning as well as the filter worked perfectly!
Thanks for sharing.
