One of my favorite mountains in Washington. A very nice shot. Personally I think the composition would be even better if the caemra were pivoted slightly to the right to cut off the second tall tree on the left thereby bringing the church a little off the edge of the frame. But there may be something unsightly there... :)

Agree with EJ, but wow- what a spectacular view. Amazing layers of light and terrain. The church adds a lot to the composition. Well done!

Nice job capturing the layers. This wold also make a great pano cropping off the bottom to the upper edge of the ditch.

Another lovely image of this beautiful scene, Ludo. I would never tire of looking at this wonderful view if it was near my home! I like E.J.'s suggestion on including a touch more to the right of the church (like you did in your previous shot) and also like Ed's thoughts on a panorama as an alternative.

Ludo, what a wonderful view!  The white mountains and church especially stand out on on this one with its pop of white amidst all the fore greenery and the smokier and sinuous background layers.  Very nice viewpoint and capture.
