This is a very nice image, although it is a long way off level!

Thanks for your comment ! I'm a big fan of your photography so I'm glad you like my humble pics :)
I know it's not level but I didn't adjust it because I would have to cut off too much. But I promise to be more careful about this next time ! :D

this is a lovely shot, i may be wrong but to me it appears very slightly underexposed....

Thanks !
I exposed for the snow-covered mountains in the background, that's why the foreground was quite a bit underexposed. To fix it I double-processed the raw file and lightened up the foreground but I didn't want to light it up more than this to preserve the orange colour of the flowers.

I'm going to assume this is HDR because of the detail, but it's difficult to say because the photograph is so well-composed. If it's not HDR, you can ignore half of this comment, haha.

Normally I hate HDR with a passion. I think that although it takes a tremendous amount of effort and skill, HDR is an attempt, (albeit a good attempt), at compensating for lack of creativity and vision.

However, I have to say I love the angle you used in this. It makes this photograph interesting, whether all souped up or not. The colours are lovely and agreeable, and the contrast is perfect, (which is very difficult to get right when doing HDR. Like I had said, you seem to have put this together seamlessly).

My only complaint is that the horizon line seems crooked, but that's just me nit-picking. (I was told in grade school by an old art teacher, "You can't draw worth beans, but you sure can tell when a line is straight.")

Anyway, this is an excellent photograph. Good job and happy shooting!

Actually this isn't HDR :D I'm not a big fan of HDR either, though I used to be some while ago.
I made this one by double-processing of a single raw file.
You're right about the horizon, while shooting I oriented myself to the trees on the right, which apparently was a mistake :stupidme:
I didn't want to correct it because I'd have to crop it too much.
Thank you very much for your critique and welcome to DA ! :)

OH, haha. I feel rather silly now.
But yeah, wonderful photograph, (even with the crooked horizon), and thank you. :)
