Somehow the color of the sky seems skewed to me (too much green?) however it's still an incredible image and well worthy of the highest possible vote!

Thank you very much for your vote, and remarks. It is an honor to receive the highest mark from you!
The way the sky turned out on the image really bothered me, too...
Unfortunately with my modest technical skills I could not handle well enough and correct the effects of the light-rays striking the area 90 degrees from the right.
Considering that there are literally hundreds of technically perfect photos with superior features (dazzling colors, lighting, etc.) on SP, I hesitated to submit my picture with the technical shortcomings. At the end I just could not resist sharing the panorama, and the radiating peacefulness I had experienced at this site in the majestic Slovenian mountains...
Regards,
Emil

The shot is perfect, although there seem to be way too much haze and over-exposure especially in the right corner of the pic. Maybe polarization filter would help next time, but I guess it has been already replied to in previous post. Keep up good work.

the day when this picture is no longer picture of the week. It is the best argument for a picture of the month I have ever seen!

It looks like Albert Bierstadt painted it and not like a photograph! Great Job!

A nicely composed scene with the off-center focal point and multiple diagonal lines leading the eye around image to the distant mountains. The diffuse side lighting adds interesting highlights. (However, I agree that less haze would be an improvement) Congratulations!

Thank you very much for your compliments! Your professional assessment is appreciated. I am all excited about finally being able to correct the color of the sky somewhat, although still not attaining original tones on the sunset clouds.
More or less I can live with the haze, but eventually (when my skills improve) I would like to get rid of some of the visible noise (which is one of the downsides of using a 2 megapixel camera)...
Cheers,
Emil

Emil, Since all types of film and digital sensors increase the contrast of the scene, I'm pretty sure the haze wasn't as apparent as it is in the image. Try a slight burning (darkening) of the shadows on the mountains. It should reduce the apparent haze and make the scene more realistic.

Thanks again for your sound advice. At last I could get rid of most of the excessive haze, and you are right: the scene is more realistic now...close to what I had witnessed back in 2005, on that wonderful autumn day over the Logarska valley.

What are the mass of white blobs just below the barn...? Are those sheep...? Birds...?

The white blobs are geese (or turkey)...Sorry for the mystery...I used only a 2 megapixel camera for this shot, and details cannot be seen too well.

This photo was edited. I had this before when there was no pink in the clouds. I prefer photos to be original scenes.
