Lookin pretty decent mate. A suggestion when shooting in that hard daylight is that you try use some filters if you have any to make the sky a bit more dense and not that strong.
Also when possible is also to try get on these locations a bit later on the day to have the more soft lowering light from the sun. Maybe not all that late but just enough to get the shadows more visible and such.
Still a pretty nice shot, keep it up mate. I'm glad seeing you post again
Wow.. is that real... I can't believe you saw that in person... that's so amazing.... The lighting is heavenly and there are so many different environments in this photo... its amazing, snowy mountain, lush green forest, and rapid river, mossy rocks, fluffy clouds. Its amazing!
