99% of the time I find heavily post-processed photos to be unspeakably awful. As someone mentioned here recently, they often look like cheap drugstore greeting cards. But I like this one. The kind of watercolor/solarized/edge-enhanced effect (or whatever it was) you used has made for a visually pleasing image, IMO. Good work.

I might lose the glider in the upper left, however. To me, it doesn't look like it belongs in the scene.

Thank you for the criticism.  You must be right about the glider because your view has been widely echoed. It will have to go.

+1 ... especially on the glider.  

In addition, you managed to capture several elements of Cezanne's signature style right:  flat patterns, horizontals running parallel to the picture plane (as opposed to "leads in" diagonal lines of the classical landscape). To me, it looks like Cezanne was the first landscape artist to use telephoto lenses to flatten apparent perspective (hypothetically speaking of course).
