@ruben latre: Thanks Ruben. The image lost a little vibrancy in the upload unfortunately, but yes it's a great location!
Realy a wild place. Nice shot.

hard to give a scene like that justice! looks a little "flat" maybe

Love all the rich tones!!!

It's a beautiful vista, looks like a long hike before you find a place where a guy can get a cool beer !

Sorry to say, Margie, but there landscapes that are beautiful to see but not lead to good photos. This image is very uniform, do not giving the idea of the distances involved. Pardon me if you feel I'm being rude.

@António Pires: Not at all Anthony. Thanks for your visit.
I like the perspective with the river starting nearly from one corner and bringing you in the image. The composition should be good with the rule of third for the sky but I feel that if you cut the top of the mountains on the left and let very little sky on the half right only the valley is better shown. Do you think so?

@akarui: I hadn't thought of that, perhaps you are right. Thanks for your comment.
That'a a lovely landscape and I'd love to explore these forests. You could enhance the impression of depth and height by creating a frame: that could be the branches of a tree in the foreground, a cloudy sky, or some man-made objects in the background. The point in time you take a picture is sometimes important: here these mountains look rather flat and uniform. If you do such a photo in the morning or in the evening, you would have some interesting shadows and contours that would make the surfaces look more interesting (usually the colour of the sky is less uniform then, too). After resizing your image you should apply some extra sharpness - you'll like the result. And don't post anything here that exceeds 800px in width - your image will appear blurry. Just a few suggestions... :-)

@MadScientist: Thanks for your suggestions!
Ahhh; love Hawaii! Taking from Akarui's comments, personally, I like the sky or at least just a portion to give it contrast and perspective. If only the valley were to be captured, it'd be alot of green with specs of brown. I'm learning too and Akarui's comments give me something to think about. Altogether, Margie, I think you did a nice job of capturing that valley.
@Kelela: Thank you Kelala.
Your composition is great, the curves of the river creates movement for the eye, great shot.

Landscapes like this always make me feel I am looking at a map of time . . the formation of those heights, the cutting of the valley, the meandering of the river, the work of the seasons. Nicely presented.

@Ronnie 2¢: Thanks Ronnie
Nice capture !

This is a great shot, but the time of day tends to give a washed out look, as Mad Scientist suggests, taking this at sunset or sunrise, would be stunning. Perhaps a tighter crop on the sky and some post processing tweaking. Prior to uploading try a sharpen filter, it seems to help a bit with A3's compression algorithm.
Keep up the good work.

@Graham Russon: Thanks for the encouragement Graham. I did tweak it a bit but not enough obviously!
Beautiful perspective shot. I like the composition and the colour tones. The third rule must remain a guide and is not to be applyed everytime! You would not obtain such a nice perspective here with the third rule.

@standley: Thanks Standley
Excellent and really interesting landscape. Being a geologist there is all sorts of interesting things in there! (in addition to the other (copius!) advice. make sure the image is in RGB colourspace. if its not images tend to flatten a wee bit on upload - I got caught out on this one!)

@Scotfot: Yes there was a lot of advice but hey...it's all welcome.
Thanks for your visit.
