This is one of the most original and beautiful mountain shots I have ever seen. This is truly a combination of timing, patience, composition, and amazing lighting. The warm gold tones rising over the dark shadows and in front of the cool hidden peaks barely visible in the background is captured perfectly. When I look at this picture I get this feeling of below the cloudy uncertainty and above the dark deep bottom somewhere in the middle is light and a warm happiness, a perfect middle ground. Amazing piece of work that you should be very proud of. I look forward to seeing even more from you, especially after this shot.

Wow, I browsed through the daily deviations and of course your picture came instantly into my sight. And I was astonished by the way how you took the picture, by the editing.. by everything, really!
The colours, the vision, everything just looks so beautiful and how I would call it: "mighty".
I rarely see deviations as good as this (even tough I take lots of picture to my favourites) and this is absolutely awesome. I don't even see a point in making "bad" critique or anything like that so be happy with this "good critique" and feel pleased by it.
I'm looking forward for MORE!

I don't know exactly how you produce your style, but I love the images in your gallery. They have the perfect balance of powerful composition, beautiful colours and interesting light effects. In my opinion you walk the fine line between fantasy and reality perfectly, making what is already extremely atmospheric even more so. This image is a great example of that.
