Lovely pastels Cliff. I would be tempted to crop some of the foreground but those mountains are really beautiful. Is this in Colorado?

Inspirational shot. I would agree with slowpez and do some cropping off the bottom, and you can take some off the sides too if you want to keep the same aspect ratio.

A big improvement to my eyes. The drama of the sun now dominates the picture, where before it seemed part of a larger landscape. Nice job!
Noe, if you wanted to try one more step, I would consider trying to clone out the telephone poles and wires. But it looks great as is.
