Amazing landscape there, but in the spirit of your post I'm being critical. As a landscape this looks like it's taken in the middle of the day, a high sun, a very little cloud has given it (on my screen anyway) an overbearing blue cast. Our eyes are very good at compensating for such things, but camera film and sensors aren't so forgiving. Also, an awful lot of picture is taken up with plain blue sky. Is this really what you want us to see and concentrate on? The really interesting stuff is in the middle & far distance and the left-hand shadows in the foreground, I would have composed around them. Nice contrast of colour and texture between the far hills and mountain and the more foreground spurs; portrait orientation might have accentuated this. The far right of the picture is a bit dull and boring compared with the fantastic light and dark of the lefthand side. The snow on the hills is over exposed I think and merges with the sky too readily; perhaps a bit more contrast or tinkering with levels could help. Hope this is of some use!
