The view is amazing, the light is incredible, but the composition needs quite a bit of work in my opinion. It's hard not to fav this just because it is so beaautiful in other areas, but really I think the foreground would benefit from a reshuffle.

I agree 100% man. I hadn't prepared properly and thus the disappointing comp. I tried to improve it, but I couldn't get back anymore because I already had my back against the rock wall. Next time :)
