Really interesting location, for sure. I can feel the air in here. Compositionally though, there may be a couple spots competing for center stage. The castle on scr. right screams for attention, because it's a very high contrast area. But then the light beam on the left, hitting all those smaller structures is trying to pull me away. Since they're right next to eachother, I feel like I'm in sort of a visual tug-of-war.
Unfortunately, I'm not smart enough to figure out a solution, and this may be what you intended anyway. Damn...long blog post. These comment boxes aren't designed for crits!

Are you kidding? That's exactly what I'm after!! Thanks. I'll see what I can do. Maybe backing off of the building tonally would do it.

yeah- i'm with marco. But still- stunning nonetheless.

I partially agree with Marco about this stunning image, but in a way i read the image as a text from left to right, then the line made by the light on the left guides my eye straight to the castle (idem for the line between the left rockwall abd the floor), that was how I saw your image first, then I read Marco excellent remark then I dunno what to think now... lol
(a solution could be to change the castle's scale and making it bigger and closer in the foreground and then there will be a sort of balance in the image)
so here is my modest "rebound" to Marco's remark!

but i really dig this image, the mood is so perfect!!
