I think it is a beautiful image. The presence of a person doesn't damage the impression the image leaves with you.
Thanks Rondec - appreciated. The critique from the others though is fair IMHO. When I relook at the picture now (after I have lost a bit of emotional attachement to it), the presence of the person seems to be making the mountains look smaller. The acutal mountains though, were humungous. That said, I had no choice, either I get the reflection using a wide-angle or use a tele to get the scale right , so I opted for the former.

I guess being a photographer I understand that the mountains are huge and that the wide angle lenses make distant things look smaller. Maybe positioning the person a little more off to one side would be better, but without them this would be a beautiful but fairly sterile image.

The perfectly symmetrical composition is a little...too perfect. I would crop off some bottom water to put the top yellow person in the true center, which accents the grandeur of being there.

I like this shot, maybe the model should be positioned a little bit on the left to be exactly between the two mountains. I like the colours and the pop up colours of the model. Nice !

Agree that without the person, it would be another landscape unless there was a huge drama happening in the sky or foreground; just another pretty picture; Given the circumstances and the locale, this is the best I could do, unfortunately. Maybe when I visit the site next time, I'll try to come up with another idea. Thank you for your thoughtful comment.

Interesting thought indeed SpecialK, I'll try that.

Cant move the model now, she's probably in Russia or Italy right now ; I'll try with another one next time I go there. Thank you very much for the suggestion, will keep that in mind.

I echo this. It's personal taste, but my brain seems to center on the yellow first and that's where the individuality comes in. I'd center on the person vs average of the person+reflection for example. That aside, I like the shot and jealous of the location access

Thanks GhostRed - Gladyou liked the image. Interesting point on the point of view of different observers - appreciated. That said, the location is public - anyone can go and click a picture.The thing about the dolomites is, it is so picturesque that it is almost guaranteedthat every picture one takes is likey to be a keeper.

This is an evening shot taken in the Italian dolomites during Autumn/Fall. C&C welcome.
Very fine. Interesting light/color/reflection. good perhaps accidental pose/reflection.
