A good capture - got plenty going for it compositionally etc. The trick is perhaps to brighten up the shadow areas without losing the misty effect. I have had a go at this in the mod I've uploaded.

Carabosse, thanks for that. You have made a definate improvement to the shot. I have a lot to learn here - so thanks again.

Hi Mart,

Couple of mods attached including the inevitable (for me), mono. some work done on foreground to lighten the area and dodging and burning in selected areas. Good original photo though.

Hello, Mart (it says Matyn in your pf, but someone is calling you this, so went with it). I like the area of mist in this image, the way it clouds the background mountains and creeps around the trees. I also like the diagonal of the horizon and the inclusion of the animals for some foreground interest. Your camera had problems with this one, the ground being quite dark and the sky overexposed. If the white/sun area in the sky weren't so close to the horizon, I'd suggest a crop to just include a bit of the sky, then the image could more easily be lightened overall. However, I like the cloud formation, so have left it as it is, selected the sky only, enhanced the gold of the sunrise and added some colour to the white area. I then selected the rest of the picture, lifted the shadows and added some contrast. A warmer colour balance was then applied overall.

Overall I have to agree with most of what's been said. A neutral density grad filter would sort out the problem - even in today's digital environment, such filters are a good tool and help to even out vastly different light levels.
