Amazing, an image I didn't (and still don't) like and I didn't want to submit (it was just a place holder), doing so well.
Because this wasn't going to be my definitive entry, I didn't bother to crop that lake out. Not sure whether it got me some lower votes, but it was mentioned in some of the comments (and they were quite right).

For the interested voters: this is the Storr on the Island of Skye, Scotland. In front of the landslip you can see some huge pinnacles (up to 150 feet), very impressive.

I've always seen this place photographed from above. With a different crop and processing this could be a top 10 image.

Is that water at the bottom of the photo? That's a little distracting. I would have liked to have seen more of it, or none of it.
The "dragon's teeth" is an interesting capture, but not what my eyes immediately focus on. The sky seems a little gray, was there a storm coming in?

great scene, just wished you'd cropped off the water as it's blown out and not very attractive to look at, neither does it do anything for the composition. Love the sky but once again with a bit of PP enhancing could of popped.

The color palette is a bit weird for me, but what a spectacular place.
