Good receding layers but I think as it is a crop off the top
to an envelope shape would make it stronger.
The very dark piece of sky could be cropped and if
there was a tree or some feature, it might make more impact as a different image.
On a positive note there is great contrast between sky and hills and you've captured
that lovely sunset colour beautifully.

Uploaded the simple crop as suggested and increased
the cloud contrast slightly with gamma slider in levels.
it might not seem much but let us know what you think.

The crop applied by Kate certainly does improve your upload but for my personal taste there is insufficient subject matter present. I see a red sky, with a central hump and a black foreground.

There is one possibility for this and that is as canvas wall art. Where the picture is not for gazing at, but is there to provide complementary colour to a wall.

I'd certainly lose the 'mottled' bit at he very top, although I'm not sure I'd go quite as far as Kate.
The receding layers idea is a good one but I think that the bottom and middle layers are too similar for it to work properly here. Personally, I'd turn the whole bottom half completely black to form a silhouette.
Horses for course, I guess.

Ive had the opportunity to read the comments, and see the mod. I like Brens suggestion, so in my mod Ive used his approach, along with Katies suggestion, and Franks, to make an image that has more sky, is wider, and fits the definition of a panoramic image, - twice as wide as it is high. The sky is really the subject here for me, and having those clouds in makes it work.
