The visual prognosis of the weather changed probably more than 20 times in that hour

Very nice!

The only nitpick is that halo along the ridge. On second thought, maybe the foreground is opened up a bit too much?

I agree with Slobodan, Armand, especially his comment about the foreground. It's a fine shot.

I agree with my fore-posters. Great shot with potential to a great picture. The halo is really distracting me and the strongly opened foreground looks somewhat artificial. I'm pretty sure that this could be fixed easily (if one would).

Its a great image destroyed by wrong postprocessing.

If I am not totally mistaken there are at least 3 occasions where the local adjustments of toning
are so obvious that they destroy the otherwise gorgeous image.

Fortunately it can be saved.

1. The mentioned Halo
2. The sudden transition between light and dark parts of the sky/clouds in the left part of the image (Though it ~might be natural, it still looks wrong to me).
3. Some trees which are oddly dark compared to others in the lower right quarter of the image

Give the image the love it deserves and it will be great.

I hope this didn't sound too harsh, but after all we are here to learn, right?
I felt I had to "defend" the image since I like it.

Cheers
