Had to crop this photo quite a bit to fit the image I had in my mind. I decided on a hazy day to take this photo as to try and provide some atmosphere to the photo and not just shoot yet another photo of the over photographed Table mountain in Cape Town. Hope you like, if not let me know why?? Oh, yes and if you see those little dots on the top right of the photo, its the mist that was on the lens which i did'nt unfortunately see :( .

Very nice rusty hues, perhaps a bit too hazy and image is kinda small. And just as a heads-up, there's sensor dust or some kind of boogies - note splotches in sky.

This photograph is too hazy and low-contrast to really be effective, the mountain doesn't have enough impact and there's no other centres of interest in the photo to capture the viewer's attention. I suggest that you need to increase the contrast so that the mountain stands out more against the sky. You might want to try altering the colour temperature too to see how it affects your image.

I would've scored this a 6 but I don't care for how small it is. It takes away from the aesthetics of the photograph.

Always nice to see a shot from home. Nothing wrong with it, but the composition doesnt grab me. Part of htis is the panarama crop and the indistinct border. I think a light thin (1 pixel in width) line between your existing border and the image would have given it more pop. Regarding the composition itself - it's hard to do mountains justice in a full frame shot without a huge high-class lens from a great distance. Perhaps it would have worked better if you had cropped closer to Lions Head and Devils Peak for a squarer frame.
I'll give you 6 - Good luck
