I like the placement of the two trees and the layering in the image. Darker FB to lighter BG. IN the FG you have additional layers in the tones of the foliage. Also, you have a upwards angle to the mountain going left to right vs. the closer hill sloping down from left to right. A nice play of shapes and lines.

I lightened the FG using Shadow/Highlight, cropped into a pano and did noise correction on the sky. A halo resulted but in the original image you will be better able to process it w/o a halo.

At the settings you are using, you should not see any nosie to this extent. Are you processing using a RAW file? There is something going on in the workflow that caused this.

That light on the mountain is great and the changes Robert made really enhance the image.

Thanks. I'm processing in raw and the sharpening I do is very little. I've also noticed lots of noise in the last few photos I've posted. Something to work on.
Robert I like your suggestions.
