That captures a magical moment for which you cannot plan ahead.
100% right and to the point. "Being there" is the answer.

Panorama of Brunnsee scenery under challenging light, mid afternoon sun partially obstructed by white clouds.
Use of 6 stop ND, 2 stops ND grad, 3 vertical exposures with nodal rail, per-processed and stitched to 100Mpixels, 4:3 crop, downsized for this post.

I will preface my remarks with the disclaimer that what I have to say is purely a matter of individual taste, and I do not mean to criticize the composition, merely to point out some personal preferences I found running through my brain when I looked at that picture.

No question, it's a great picture, but it has too many beautiful things in one shot. Each distracts from the others. I think there's like five or six outstanding pictures in that one shot, each of which could be cropped out and enlarged. The best part of it, by my lights, is the mountain in the center, flanked by the others on either side and some reflection in the pond. But I almost didn't see that at first, because of the waterfall in the foreground, which captured my attention (without being particularly terrific in and of itself). The side mountains are terrific by themselves,the clouds as well as the right-hand side of the pond (algae and all) are terrific, as is the part with the reflections. The whole right hand side by itself. The upper right quadrant. The upper third and the lower third as panorama.

I don't rightly know, maybe it's just too magical a place.

That's a lot of forethought, preparation and post exposure work to generate a single image, but the result certainly justifies the efforts. It looks like a painting = as if someone visualized all the elements they wanted and how they should be arranged.

Evokes memories of Bierstadt or Hudson River School painters.

Agree the image is perfect. Never considered the question if there can be too many perfect elements in a single image. Understand dlh's point. Don't know if I agree or not. Usually a picture with many points of interest fails because some parts are weaker and bring the whole image down. That isn't the case here. Have to ponder this longer.

Great image biz-engineer.
Thanks for sharing,

I think it is an amazing photo and as someone else remarked, very much in the Hudson River School (which I happen to like very much).

Looks like all that effort paid off.

Excellent results.
