Interesting scene. It definitely brings to mind desolation. The tones are a bit flat, but the composition is nice. I think I might have preferred a slightly tighter vertical crop though.

I think a polarizer would have helped this a lot, because the shadows are indistinct and the sky is too white. Nice composition.

Title/picture are a good match. Sharp photo. 8 Swash

Good shot. I feel this may have worked better with an overcast sky or in B & W. DPz

Blah blah blah rule of thirds blah blah blah. I'm guessing you're hearing some of that this week since the image is fairly divided in half in the top & bottom. It's an interesting subject. I might have considered cropping out the rock on the bottom right -- it seems just a little too dark compared to the rest of the features.

On my monitor there doesn't seem to be enough detail because the forground is dark. Maybe less contrast would help.

Definately naturally, untouched by man, but it's not too greatly exciting. Sorry. It is technically well done. lighting is good, and the angle and framing/cropping are good, and your focus seems good too. It just lacks that something to make it scream 'wow' to me. Good luck in the challenge.

Very forboding.

A tad too dark, a brighter day would have been a better choice I think.
