I really like the feel and overall tonality of this image. However on close inspection their are distracting artefacts around major objects. The foreground rock has a visible white line around the top and the horizon looks a little strange. These are a visible on my phone. With  care in selection and a bit of feathering this could be a brilliant image. Ken

I agree, lots of potential, but needs more careful processing?

Now is that sky is a bit too much? ;). Try darkening just the Shadows in your grad filter.

John, I was trying to get the sky really dark as per your valuable advice. Guess I failed (again). :)

Grad skies are always a subjective thing!

Ken, is this processing any better? I tried to follow your advice and this is the result.

I'm still seeing halos. But I like the composition, tones and textures.

I agree with ken - it would be an outstanding image if not for the white lines (still visible).  Its a great composition and I think the best one you've done so far (that I've seen)
Well done.
