Warning* I saw the white specks in the upper part of the picture, in the dark clouds. that is snow being blown by high winds off of Peavine mountain. I got scared and thought I damaged something inadvertantly.. but the system checks out good.

It's nice. You might clone out that little bit of flare in the lower center.

I agree with that lower flare. Sometimes I like to leave the flares in, but being that one is all by itself in the lower frame over the shadow, I'd try to clone it out.

I think I'd like a little HDR on this as well. The bushes are too dark for my taste. I think the red and yellows in them would add to this.

The grass isn't greener on the other side, it's green where you water it.

I really like the composition, and a touch of HDR may be good, but I don't think it is necessary. As far as I can tell, everything in the frame is pristine wildlands, except for the power poles directly under the sun. Is that what you wanted as a subject? My personal opinion would be to clone that out, but maybe I'm missing its significance. Am curious as to camera & lens used, as well as your aperture selection, if you care to share.

Nice composition and colors. I agree about the lower lens flare as well as cloning out the power poles in the background. HDR could work for this image.

They look like large crosses to me. If they are power poles where are the others?

Look to the left of the image and you'll see more.

Yeah, the dark bushes really bother me. Could use a little photoshop work (via layers).
