I think this picture falls between several stools.
There is beautiful mountain structure, good sky, rolling grassland and that horribly untidy stand of trees. The trees are not close enough to be foreground interest, and so don't really add anything to the scene. In addition, they cut the near horizon into the background, making me want to see past them into the distance.
If you have to include them, I think they would be better in the lower right, and smaller, so they are contained within the empty grass area, or get lower and have them lit against the sky. There are plenty of rocks you could have used for close foreground interest. As it is, tilting the camera up a little to have less grass and more sky would be better. An ND grad would help give the sky some punch too.
Looking at the exif time, earlier in the day would have been better - the light would have been less harsh and more directional.
To get a good idea of mountain landscapes and what you can achieve with the minimum of ingredients, look at Colin Prior, Charlie Waite and others.
There are good photos here though, if you can revisit the site again early or late in the day and try different things.
it is a pleasant well composed landscape, but there is nothing there to make it stand out. Standard mid day lighting and content. Needs some dramatic lighting to give impact.
