First Impressions
A nice specimen of this part of the world that shows man's engineering skills to get around it.

Photograph Information, Technicals & Composition Review
Whilst the blue is rich, the barely discernible gradient seems out of balance upper right. The scene doesn't seem to be placed within the frame in a way that leads the eyes in and around to explore. It would have been good to see a little tighter crop if the quality was there and be able to see more detail in the mountain face, that or a little more context, more background mountains showing the land formations may have given this some added interest. As is, the crop looks like parts are missing, such as below the road at the bottom of frame, the upper left peak of the mountain and the distant mountains to the right.

Comments, Score & Placement Review
53/182 with a score of 5.30 is not such a strong showing for this Challenge - I suspect that, whilst the geological formation is good, there was no main focal point, or feature placement compositionally, to hold a viewer's attention and draw them in to linger for a while. Your commenter's provide some good feedback and there are some helpful points made too.

A more refined crop and choosing a section of the image to feature more would likely have given this image a bit more of an edge. As rich as the sky is, it probably dominates the subject a little too much.

I like the deep, rich colour of the sky. However, the rocks seem to fade into each other, while you have some great colours there that could have eben worked with. Some adjustments to individual colour layers could have brought out the reds and greets from the grey rock, and made a more appealing image

Photos like this remind of how boring and flat my part of the world is... thanks for the feeling of envy :) Great blue sky.

Sky colour looks a tad oversaturated but otherwise, awesome!
