Miguel, this landscape looks like a great place to go hiking and exploring for sure, not to forget the natural beauty as well. Nice DOF and your POV is perfect, coming from a hiker that loves this kind of landscape. Colors saturation is good and with great clarity, I wish that the detail to the BG was a little better, but I know what it is like to capture that perfect photo, when the lighting is poor or over bright, but that doesn't take anything away from this beautiful landscape you have captured. Excellent job Miguel!!

here another curious corner of india, we could think this place could be in northern europe or canada, not in india. nice framing and details of the beautiful natural landscape, it is a pity the white sky.

If you had not written that this is India, I'd think this was somewhere in France... Inspite of the mist and backlight, you manage a beautiful scenery shown well on picture.
Beautiful creek flow, red/brown stones, and the verdant surroundings are marvelous.
