Nice shot, Padma. You can do a lot with camera phones these days.

You are well positioned in the frame and your shadow does give that extra dimension of loneliness to the shot. I Like the way the path curves round to the left. My only point is that the path drops down quite a way to the left. It may have done that in real life but the mountains look a bit strange as they are also tilting down to the left. Either the camera was not held straight or there was some distortion in the taking of the shot.

I have uploaded a mod for you where I have straightened the horizon using image>transform> skew. It's quite tricky to get it right as you will change shape along with the rest ofthe pic! I hope I have not distorted you too much.

Best wishes

As a reminder of a visit, this isn't at all bad but as has been said, the horizon needs some attention and for me at least, the colours are a bit bright.
I think the biggest problem you have here though is with the composition.
There's lots of road in the foreground and the top of the tree is cropped.
I've uploaded a mod. in which I've extended the canvas and cloned in some tree and sky. I've also straightened it and de-saturated the colours (-30).
Hope it's OK.


Edit: I didn't realise until I'd uploaded the mod but the palm trees are now falling over!
