Welcome to Ephotozine Pierre.

You have uploaded this image for Critique, and we have all of the EXIF data, thank you.

It is a nice scene, and the GPS coordinates show where this is, which is nice to know. The setting seem OK also.

It think there may have been some haze, or mist at the time that causes a slightly faded appearance to the mountain, not unusual; some people will use a Circular Polariser filter to reduce this effect.

You used a manual white balance, - we dont know what this is, and to me it seems that there may be a little too much green and blue bias.

I have uploaded a modification which has some highlights tned down, and the white balance slightly altered, - just for comparison. To see this, click the Modification button under the image.

A pictorial record, but compositionally not gong to hold the viewer for long if they are not conversant with the area. the colour is very blue/green and suggests the wrong white balance - shade possibly. I know Willie is a great supporter of the right white balance but I always use the Auto setting and correct later if needed. Colour correction can be performed on JPG as well as RAW.

And welcome from me, too, Pierre! I love the ingenuity of yrou screen name...

I wonder if you have done some processing on this shot, and if so, what you were looking to achieve (and whether you feel you did it).

The white balance looks quite odd to me, in the sense that the colours all look very saturated, and green.

A secondary subject, nearer the camera than the mountain and on the opposite side of the frame seems like a good idea - a tree, if htere is one. A figure, perhaps?

This feels unbalanced to me as it is very bottom heavy. I feel that the interest should be the mountain, this brings us shape, texture and tone with lines that flow. However the mountain is faded and dull and instead our eye is drawn to the trees at the bottom of the frame. The problem is that there is nothing there to hold our interest, its simply a block of colour.
