I love this picture Dianne, when I first saw it in your gallery, it appealed immediately. It has an almost primeval quality and I somehow expect to see some dinosaur come out of the trees.
The atmospheric gradation is wonderful too and the seamist adds to the quality.
I'm a little uneasy about the contrast in the foreground, though I suspect you may have tried to address this area somehow yourself. Maybe its the direction of the sun, I'm not sure, but I just feel the foreground needs a lift. I'm also guessing the aspect ratio is governed by your camera format, personally I prefer a 3:2 ratio and I might be looking to crop a little off the bottom as a result
Call it personal taste nitpicking
