This image doesn't work for me. The foreground is underexposed and uninteresting. The tonal values of the sky are nice, but it's limited to the lower and mid values everywhere else. Except for the sky, the scene looks like an expanse of middle greys to me.

I don't agree. Looser, and get the arches farther to the right so there's a sweeping diagonal from the upper right of the picture down to the lower left. I can't see what's to the left, but maybe there's a slope over there that'll carry the diagonal even farther.

One or the other, I agree, but unless the OP has already cropped this image, then I don't imagine even Content Aware Fill can fill in that much detail, so for this image I'd try moving in tighter.

Even in B/W this picture tells a story to me. My first thoughts: John Ford is sitting in his famous chair behind the camera, John Wayne is waiting in the left, outside the picture and will ride along in a few moments...

I like pictures which are inspiring me to day-dream a little bit.

Strangely enough, a color picture wouldn't do that.

Perhaps because the missing information engages our brain so we start to think about.

Definitely "looser" on the top as the top of the rock almost meets the edge cutting off the the feeling of this "soaringly-big" edifice. to my eyes, anyway, the bottom third including the foreground shrubbery that's been cut off could be eliminated in favour of more sky - any chance of you having made another image along those lines?

Best I can do with cropping and moving closer and repositioning. BTW, this is a combined as metered and +2 HDR merge, processed in LR. Hopefully the rendering is "acceptable." Appreciate the feedback as always.
