Powerful image… I like the contrast between the green foreground, the deep blue of the sea and the menacing gray/black mountain. The golden accents on the lower slopes of the mountain add a sense of relief (*)!

Nice framing using the hayfield and clouds. Elegant curving beach contrasts with the linear cliff. Etc etc!

Nice scale provided by the house ...but essentially a flat image.

My first impression was that there should be more sky above the mountain in the background. I felt 'cheated' somehow, that it had been cropped to tightly.  A visceral reaction more than an objective assessment.

Mike,

This is deliberate.  I wanted to emphasize the looming mountain over the fjord and farm.  In a wide angle shot of the same scene available at the link to my blog post, I have offered more of the sky.

Thanks for your explanation, Rajan, as I was feeling the same way as Mike. Another beautiful image - thanks for sharing.
