Like many I have been coming back to this picture several times and not being able to pinpoint what it is that is distrurbing about this image - yes I do like it very much for the sky and the ice in the foreground, but overall it wasn't coming together.
What I have surmised and seems to be reflected in some of the other posts is that the top and bottom of the image (sky and ice) are very high contrast, whereas the middle (two boulders, mid ground and forest in shadow) are low contrast. As the eye is drawn to higher contrast areas it either settles on the mountain ridge or the ice, but finds it difficult to comfortably negotiate the space between the two.
What you may like to try is increasing the contrast of the two boulders and the mid ground to match that of the sky and foreground. This will even up contrast across the image and not create a no-mans land in the middle where the eye finds it uncomfortable to settle. Perhas the boulders a bit darker may help to frame the picture in a V type formation starting with the ice at the bottom working up through the mid ground to the sky at the top.
Following is a rough stab at what I am trying to convey - it would need to be redone and rebalanced to ensure that the centre of attention on the ice is not lost amongst the other stuff.
Thanks very much for the picture and others you have posted, nice stuff.
