The sunlight contrasting against the dark mountain and sky makes this an appealing scene - the thumbnail definitely drew me in for a further look. I guess if you are loading in this gallery you are looking for something more than - great light! A more critical look identifies a few distractions: the large white cloud area at the top; the light coloured rock on the lower centre and the larger bush on the left. It is possible with a crop to remove all of these to make a more clear focus on the subject - the dark mountain and highlighted trees. I'll try it on a mod in a minute. On the processing side some might say it is slightly over processed but that is a matter of taste - I think I see a sharpening halo above the mountain for example. Hope that helps. Steve.

Nice enough landscape, with good exposure for the clouds which is the only point of interest. Generally Steve-T has nailed it with his above comments and Mod.

The thumbnail looked brilliant and full size didn't disappoint. Having done a lot of hill walking in days gone by, I am always drawn to to mountain scenes and ,as presented, this is very good. However, Steves comments are spot on and his mod lifts this image to the outstanding level. Excellent

A generally nice image of it's type. For me, the problem is that nothing actually lifts it above that level. Nice lighting, good composition and pleasant to look at.
