On my trip to South Africa... was on my way back to the flat while that night the sky was showing some reddish clouds and a very clear / illuminated table mountain. Couldn't miss the opportunity. So there you go, minor works include:
-contrast
-curves...

Very very interesting! What an amazing site! I would have loved to have seen this in person. I have never been out of the United States, much less Africa. I am so jealous.

I think that you have captured this scene very well. The purple tones of the sky are magical. The mountain is very interesting as well. It has great texture and seems to change color either from the skies reflection or manipulated by you...doesn't matter...its cool! The subject for the challenge was a good one! I also feel that this image has alot of appeal to it.

The one thing that I might have done differently would have been the crop. Now, I am not an expert or claim to be. I do not photograph landscapes either. This is just my opinion. I would have zoomed in closer to the mountain and let IT take up about 1/2 or 3/4 of the frame. Cropping it just a little bit above the highest peak of the mountain. The reason is because, I personally find the colors and texture of the mountain more appealing than the sky. The sky is beautiful, but for me, the clouds do not seem to hold enough of my interest to take up more than half of the frame.

I hope that this was helpful. Please forgive my spelling..I am just a hick from Tennessee. LOL

Now this is a picture I need to take. Where is it taken from? Signal Hill road? I think I would like to try from the end of the unfinished highway.

What a great view and nice capture. May be my monitor but seems that the right bottom corner could be a bit lighter.
