this shot works nicely although it is a tad dark. adjust this either in camera by raising the exposure or brighten it in photoshop.

the foreground is too distracting for me so maybe cropping it would be the answer to that problem.

By using an ND graduate filter (such as one from the cokin p-series or more expensive lee filters) you could eliminate the blown out bits in the sky and give the clouds a lot more contrast.

altogether i really like this shot but it's not perfect. just keep taking pictures, listen to advice and your photos should get better soon.

I do agree that the photograph is a bit dark. However, I feel that adds more to the charm. The mood of the landscape is more sedate or serene, as opposed to bright and sparkling. As a result, it makes the piece very relaxing to look at. The way you captured the reflection of the sky in the lake is beautiful as well. The unevenness gives it a surreal quality, and makes you feel as if you are either about to tip into a mirror, or are in a dream. It also creates an excellent balance between earth and sky. I would brighten the exposure, but otherwise I think it's lovely! Wonderful job!

Both critiques are partially right, in my opinion. I feel that the horizon should not be in the middle; although at the same time I don't believe that much in standardizing methods. I personally love this shot for my own reasons :)
