Mountain Photograph to edit

This photo had given me some difficulty in editing when I had less experience, and decided to give it another go. The tip of the mountain in the middle of the photo had some discoloration in the trees which I had to undo in Filmic after I had gone through the edit. I am interested to see your vision for it.

For those interested, this was taken in the Guadalupe Mountains National Park in Texas, USA.

No edit from me (yet), but what a spectacular location! Thanks for sharing an arresting capture!

Something like that:

For XMP, just download the JPG as an XMP.

The color of the trees is problematic in some edits. Tried to avoid that.

Certain parts can indeed be problematic. Interesting.

Anyway, thanks for sharing.
