I must say that like it but I am unsure if it has enough interest for others so any comment will be appreciated.

I am uncertain about why I do not like this image that much. The light is the most immediate thing that strikes me, then the rock shapes and sizes. I think it lacks visual balance in that the light draws you to it but does not offer anything that interesting. The large boulders are very interesting but they are not the focal point and were not composed to be.

Looking at this a bit, the light at the center seems to be coming from inside somewhere. That's the ticket I think - try cropping or whatever to move in toward the light.

I like the composition, but what's bothering me is the lack of color. It's almost B&W. I took the liberty to play around a little bit with the colors and contrast. It's not good yet, but just as an example.

Regards,
Luis

Thank you all for your comments.

Luis, interesting new rendition. Precisely a while after posting the image I played with colors and contrast to arrive to something like what you suggest separating colors and increasing contrast, I made two more versions in fact. Seems that it's one of these images where you don't know when to stop.

The branches in the lower left throw me off, but you can't crop them out without destroying the composition...

Clone tool? Slow but could be worth the trouble.

Let's be creative and a bit humorous and fix these branches in a different and easier way:

<pedantic mode on>

The significance of the recently cut branches, though an small element in the image, attract attention of viewers from the solid structures making them wonder what happened there and producing a contraposition of the everlasting boulders with the fragility of living elements.

<pedantic mode off>  

This in my mouth sounds stupid, wondering if someone else could make it sound more convincing.

Yep, I am kidding eh?

Maybe vignette the edges heavily so that it appears that all of the light is coming through the hole on the rocks, and consigning the distracting branches to an inky oblivion...

I can relate to this. I think that light at the center adds mystery.
