I like the composition a lot, but it does seem a touch blue to me. I am not an expert by any stretch, just my first blush reaction.

It's a wonderfully composed shot, Neil. Not too surprisingly, I picked up on the moisture issue. I'm really proud that I sensed you were angled toward the impressionist view. But this thing about the eucalyptus haze caught me unaware....never heard of such a thing.
I'm pleased to see this posting, my friend. It's been too long between your presentations.

I hope you don't mind my bluntness here but I find the image lacking. I appreciate you posting the impressionist painting as a point of reference for what you were trying to achieve. For me the image just falls short of a great landscape photo and also short of being an impressionist inspired image. You mentioned the image was processed in a crayon color style- have you considered pushing this even further towards a heavily processed image rather than retain photograph qualities?
Interesting to read about the Eucalyptus oil. Arizona and other Southwestern U.S. states are also prone to a blue haze but it usually water vapor.
Thanks for sharing.
