This is a thoroughly competent landscape. Exposure is good, and the framing with the trees works well.

However, I'd like to see a fraction more on the left, and less on the right: I've uploaded two mods, both cropped square. The first one reduces exposure a fraction, and the second one uses the Adobe Dehaze slider to get more detail in the mountains - however, this may nto be what you want at all. The mistiness may be part of what you wanted to show.

You were dealing with some haze in the mountains, which reduces contrast. Otherwise a nicely framed shot.

Its possible to reduce this effect in post processing, which Ive done in the mod.

Ideally, then, if you don't want the haze, you need to shoot when it's not there, which probably means early in the day.

The secret of landscapes is - I believe - t shoot when hte light is right, and to compose well. After that, the location is the third consideration. Most people get that all back to front.

It makes it difficult: you may need to be there fifteen times to get the right light. Look at THIS for an example of what it takes... Familiarity with the place. Being there at the right time (even if it feels like the wrong time when you get out of bed!) and being on top of the technicalities.
