Nice set

a few nitpicks

First, I'm not too keen on the snow on the grassy tuft - it looks like something a bird has left, as foreground interest it doesn't quite tick my box. The grad has coloured the sky slightly and the rock, giving it a slightly odd contrast to the light on the foreground, though the reflected light in the valley would have a different value. I'm mixed about how it looks here.

Second, the grad has overdarkened the cloud at the top, though no doubt something you'll address with the raws. Nice foreground interest - positioning feels too far left, especially the side of the puddle which is close to touching the border.

Last, nice subject and sky colour. Feels a bit imbalanced between the sky space and tightness of the stumps to the bottom edge. The parallels are so close to being parallel that I'd say its worth correcting.
