I'm not usually a fan of post-processing tricks and filters that make photos look like paintings, but in this case it works very well. It has a wonderful luminance. Very, very  nice.

One pet peeve, though. Skip the list of camera settings. IMHO, such objective specifics detract from the subjective joy of looking at this image.

I agree with Chuck... love the image, couldn't care less about the camera info. It is pretty much irrelevant.

That is a great capture! It might be even more dramatic with some vignetting effect applied, concentrating attention to the illuminated yellow trees.

Really nice. I like the contrast between the duns, grays, browns and the gold at the end. Very inspiring.

Thanks for posting that you removed the camera info.  For a minute there, i thought I had imagined it and commented about nothing.    

Still love the shot!!

Just checked out your site. The same image on your site with a black background looks much different than viewing in on this forum with a lighter background.
The image really comes alive with a lighter border

A wonderful image. Puts me in mind of the Pre-Raphaelites. The contrast between the muted main colors and the golden center is stunning.
