Golden light during an autumn morning at Réou d'Arsine, a peaceful circle of mountains in the Ecrins National Park.

I've been wanting to write a critique for your photo for a couple of days now. I think this is a spectacular photo and your composition is perfect.
That being said, if you want to make it even better, I think incorporating some HDR is not a bad idea. It would definitely fix some of the underexposed areas on the left, upper side of the image. Not sure if you're familiar with HDR-but it would have been perfect for this image/subject, especially since using a tripod is a must. You would take your 3 shots, (without moving your camera)- one shot at regular exposure, another shot at 1 level overexposed, and your 3rd shot 1 level underexposed. Then you place the 3 images into an HDR software and you will see areas that needed more or less exposure are fixed. Lots of tutorials out there.
You have some of the most amazing photographs out there. Keep up the excellent work!

Thank you for your critique ;-)

To let you know, I don't use HDR softwares in my process. 99% of my pictures are single exposures using lee graduated filters, and I try to extend the dynamic range while processing with the use of luminosity masks when it is necessary (everything is manually done). For this one, I think the result is good enough to my opinion as there were really darker sides in the mountains at that moment.

Anyway, thanks a lot for your support ;-)
