I prefer the edited version. Nice layering (I actually quite like this technique) and composition (which is enhanced by the layer, the composition and effect compliment each other nicely), The edited version makes the whole image pop out. Very nice 1st contribution Ray, Thanks for sharing.

+1 ^ What he said

Just a thought... I would've liked to have seen this same composition but with the camera was just a tad higher - so that the rock outline in the foreground would've cleared the foot of the mountain range in the background. I have a feeling that an undisturbed horizon line might give this perspective a little bit more flow.

Hi Ray,
your edited version is much better as it gives more 'punch'. Agree with Dioptrick that a slightly higher viewpoint would help though. Good shot though!
Cheers,
Paul

Thanks all, Dioptrick, yes I see that now, thank you, I'll add that to my list of things to think about a little more in future.

Agree with most of the comments and appreciate anyone willing to be open for comments. The sky is clearly the point of attention, so 2/3 sky, 1/3 landscape as a rule. Would like to have seen this with everything in focus for comparison.
The distant mountains would have looked closer with more telephoto compression. Filters that make clouds darker can often be over done.
