Overall a pleasant scene. The mono conversion is an interesting choice and I imagine it suited the mood of the day with the dark clouds and rain you were experiencing.

I would lift the levels here to bring out the tones and the mod uploaded should demonstrate the difference for you. The original here is a little flat, overall very grey and little separation between tones. Using the sliders on the levels option you can maximise the range of tones captured by the sensor. A little burning in to darken down the sky to retain the detail in the clouds and the feeling of the weather and a little dodging to bring back some detail in the rocks in the left lower corner as I find this a little too dark a mass and becomes a distraction in the corner of the eye as you view the image.
