An attempt to follow @Erik_Stensland’s suggestion:

The photographer is looking for generalized feedback about the aesthetic and technical qualities of their image.
The day I played submarine with my camera, I hung out in camp for most of the day. (I had the camera in a Ziploc with desiccants, and the sun was amazingly helpful in heating the bag since it was a cool day. However the sunny areas kept moving as the sun moved, and I had to “tend” the camera to keep it in the sunshine.)
Sitting in camp, I kept eyeing this spot on the far shore of Russell Lake. I was attracted to the pattern formed by the foreground trees, with the background of older trees behind. When the clouds rolled in the next day and I decided to turn the camera on, I ran around shooting a couple “big” views (both the image I just posted and the one I’ll post next), but just before packing the camera back in desiccants for the hike out I turned away from the mountain and shot this scene. Fog was trickling in behind the trees, and that helped with the background.
A very real dilemma for those of us with a grand-scene addiction is that when the bigger views are everywhere, it is easy to pass right by the stuff hiding in plain sight. Jefferson Park had a ton of subject matter, especially on that final day when the weather rolled in and it became a much different, more ethereal and mysterious, place. I wish I had had a couple more days, and it would have been best if the mountain had been hidden by clouds to force me to look away and see the rest of the beauty that was everywhere.
No specific questions, so all thoughts and recommendations are appreciated.
