I think this was a well thought out image that was possibly taken at the "wrong" part of the day. A little hazy on the mountain and could use a slight bit of cropping. I worked this image over adjusting the highlights, shadows, blacks, whites, clarity, vibrance and gave it a tad bit of vignette. Using clarity makes the mountains a little more defined and takes away a bit of the haze.
