Was just in Seattle and had a chance to get to Mt. Rainier. Great place! What do you think of the shot I got?

Looks overdone, IMHO. Would look much better if you changed the settings to make it look more natural/subtle.

Composition-wise, that tree on the right is bugging me.

I like the composition, but the colors are just too blue for my taste
How did you PP this photo? beside the HDR
P.S I wonder how this would look in B&W

I would prefer that tree on the left of the picture and not cropped that much.
I'm with El Duderino - it does look overdone (pushing the tonals too much to blue as well). and too saturated.
I REALLY like the shot though - it is very clear and the view is amazing.
Did you shoot multiple photos or converted a single RAW file to the HDR?

Thanks for the comments guys. I see what you mean about the blue. How about this? First is the original and the second is the redone one.

I know what you mean about the tree but I couldn't quite move the tree myself! Haha! And I couldn't do anything about the cropping as there were just more trees to the left and I couldn't move myself any further to the left. Had to play with the cards I was dealt I guess.
