    there's an obvious tilt in the horizon. furthermore, with the overcast weather, this turns out to be pretty dull.

    i would suggest u reshoot this on another day when the skies r clearer n try to include the sun setting in ur frame. otherwise there's no point of interest in this photo.

    Thanks for sharing guys , for this one i used setting below :

    Focal Length = 10mm
    Aperture = f/11
    Exposure = 10 secs
    ISO Speed = 100
    Exposure Bias = -1 EV

    And there is barrel distortion on 10mm .

    Actually, I thought the sky had potential. If handled properly, can yield a very nice picture as well.

    Need for ND, GND is really dependent on the conditions and what you want to achieve.

    Er..if i might add:

    1) half or even 1/4 of a tree on the right is pretty distracting...
    2) huge chunks of rocks with lots of dirt and old leaves don't make an interesting composition
    3) if the TS searched for a better cloud pattern it might have made the composition better..

    just my opinion
