Strictly from a composition standpoint, this is a marvelous image, Jack! The borders of the frame all have such interesting elements, it is magnetic. The brightly lit clouds and sun cast makes me think of this view as one of coming out of the dark and into the land of peace, beuaty, and joy. Your magnificent and m,asterful treatment work takes it form that awesome level, yet to the top of the world! Just fantastic in every way Jack. Thank you for this!!
