Hi Franco!

I like the composition of your picture and the subject it shows. But it lacks a bit of the lighting management: the darks are a little bit too dark, the bright tones - especially those in the clouds - are far too bright and partially burnt. I know it is very difficult to expose correctly in harsh contrast conditions as here. I personally then measure my exposure on the bright parts and lighten up the dark tones in my editing software.

Kind regards

this is a great shot of the topography of the area...the eroded patterns tell us the river runs fast and hard in season
the sky is well handled and kept in an exposure range to show the cloud and blue
a lot of people will do this with a pola but it can be over worked
this is fine
