A spectacular image Isabella and a beautiful place.

You exif data shows f/22 at 1/20 second, presumably at 18mm, so if this was not tripod mounted, or the camera on a solid base you were lucky to get it sharp. I understand why the small aperture, but using 18mm you may have got away with f/11 or f/14 allowing for a faster speed.

From the pov of composition, you are best to place the horizon on a third, and perhaps you struggled with this here as you feared losing the nice foreground rock. Moving further back and shooting from a lower pov would have helped.

It does benefit with adding some sky at the top to place the horizon on a third, and ive done this in a mod; also cropped space from the right and added space to the left to get the rock into a better position. I have slightly reduced contrast to lighten overall, and reduced saturation just a touch.

Hope this is helpful,
