Hi Dan

This is quite beautiful... the streaming cloud, the subtle light highlighting a bit of colour in the FG and the reflection all work for me.. Wonderful. My only suggestion is that if it were mine I might consider lightening just the riverbank opposite very slightly. It's forming a dark band which is sort of a barrier to the eye flowing through the image... It's niggly stuff really but if it were mine I would at least look at it..

Ditto Don's comments. I like the contrasts of the black/white mountain and the beautiful fall colors. The reflection adds so much.

Nice view dan, like the cloudy "run away" from the Mouintain, just don`t like the incomplete reflection, IMHO it would benefit the image.

Loving the colours, layers and mood here Dan. Good image design overall and pleasing to view.
Some of the whites in the clouds may need a bit of taming - not sure if you recovered a lot from there already?

Hi Dan, this is a very nice scene and well composed. It would make a lovely pano as an alternate version too. Agree with Don on the riverbank, but it is in shade...could you have waited for the sun to light it up? Also agree with Morkel on the bright spots in the clouds.

Hi, Dan, gorgeous clouds and I love Mt. Adams peeking through and the gorgeous light on the treetops. Nicely done:S3:

Very neat, good clouds and scene. The clouds could use a bit more detail in the whites, but its still good.
