This is a stunning image of Moraine lake with lovely tones. My only distraction - and it may be naturally occurring one, is that on the upper left slope there is a white band and there is no equivalent reflection in the water on the lower left. If that was modified (I think fairly easily) I would rate it highly. I hope that you take this comment in the honest way I have offered it considering that I may be in error. Sometimes the messenger gets beaten up.

I am in agreement with Tony. It is an obvious and distracting result of HDR haloing. It is also prevalent in the UR. If they were eliminated, the image would be elevated to another quality. This is a grand place, but you happened to show up on a day when the sky didn't have much interest, so less sky in the composition would also do wonders. I would love to see this cropped across the top so the horizon falls square in the middle. Normally that wouldn't be encouraged, but since the reflection has a mirror effect, I think it would strengthen the symmetry. As it is, too much space in the frame has been lost to a blank gray sky. Anis, not many photographers can offer the insight that Tony possesses, so it might be worth your while to heed his suggestions!

You are too kind - I am just a simple photographer with my own struggles hoping to learn and become better.

Thanks for you comments Tony  and pointing out the flaw .This was my first attempt at HDR and i have still to learn the intricacies of the program.I first tried tone mapping which looked awful to me and so i switched to exposure fusion which was better .i didnt do a whole lot of adjustments and picked the monochrome form one of the presets .I am not looking for any souped up images in HDR , just to get some details in shadows .As you can see this place does not require any enhancements .It is surreal as it is ..Regards Anis .
