Stiking shot, with great color. But still, I'd like to see it in B&W; it's vaguely reminiscent of Ansel Adams, and I think it would be great that way, too.

This is great work for sure. I'm guessing it's a HDR.

Looks like a very nice place to spend some time relaxing and taking a few photos.

Spectacular image! As Mark had asked, HDR? I'd love to visit the area someday.

Great looking HDR with striking composition!
Still, I'd select the the sky for some blue and cyan saturation boost for a starker background for the mountains whose snowy summits catch the evening lights.

Well done goomer! Magnificent in every aspect. Great composition and love the sun / moon elements.

I'm also curious (being on the other side of the globe), what does a wider perspective of this area look like? Do you have any of the general surrounds to share?

Thanks for all the wonderful comments everyone, they're very much appreciated. This is in fact an HDR image. I had a 3 stop Singh Ray ND grad on my lens and still couldn't handle this scene without losing some elements I really wanted in the final image. So this is a 5 shot combo, 1 stop apart.
Bahadir, thanks for the tip, I will definitely have an eye to that in future edits.
Paul, I posted another shot I took at the same time using an ultra wide, hope you like it.
