Great view, Harshad. I like the perspective but you do have the washed out colors due to the light. Not much going on in the sky, I might have cropped that down a bit. Did you use a polarizer?

Hi Harshad,
Rule #1 for landscapers......it's the light , the light, the light! You were probably photogrphing the tigers during the sweet light.......so earlier in the day or later would give the image more depth. Julie gives you some excellent advice on the sky too....since it didn't have much interest up high....cropping it down to just above the bush...where it's full on the right....will help this compositionally.....if you had clouds.....that would be another story! I do think that you can just lower the brightness some.....but you still wont get the needed depth in the valley floor to give this that extra something. Glad to see you took to the challenge.....and looking forward to more!

Hi Harshad,
You were probably photographing the tigers during the sweet light...

Hi Harshad,agree with Romans comments especially regarding the light. As in most forms of photography it's a critical factor in landscapes. Agree with the crop advice since the sky is mostly blank.
Now if there was a tiger peering down the valley on the lower left...that would be a bonus!!:D
