Bruce A. Dart April 30, 2008

The multitude of comments - with congratulations and admiration are deserved. Many elements combine to make this a truly great image; the sun, the fog, the "layers" and composition. What elevates it from very good to greatness for me is the additional detail of wonderful light -- and separation of the tree at the bottom left -- as well as the touch of light on the hills in the foreground. All the elements work to make it totally awesome!! Great job. #5862377
