Hi... it's a nice enough panorama, however in my honest opinion you have too much sky and some of that sky is blown, ie some of the whites are aver exposed. In my mod I have put the horizon on the upper thirds line and applied a gradient filter to darken the clouds in an attempt to make them more interesting. I have also cropped a little of both the right and left hand sides.

If you are wondering about the thirds line google The Rule Of Thirds in photograph.

I hope this helps.

You can check what this will look like with less sky very quickly by scrolling down to leave the sky at the top edge of your monitor. I agree with Trev about this, RoT would improve it greately, but even then, for me, I feel although a pleasing vista is there is is not an eye catcher, lacking a vital point of interest.

The other problem for me, is that the splendour, the drama and the real interest is the mountains. These are mostly deep in shadow and are overpowered by the rim of bright bushes in front. 1/2 of the shot is taken up with sky which has little drama as some of the highlight is blown. Maybe using a longer focal length would help compress the scale a little and help to make it feel more like one continuous landscape rather than 3 disparate parts.
