Whilst I can see what you're trying to do, and I often like dark conversions, I think it's fallen between several stools.

The rocks, Nab and clouds all vie for attention, and I find myself flicking between them. Losing the rocks, and just having the clean skyline with the Nab would have cleaned the image up. The clouds are neither sharp, nor really blurred...I think one or the other would be preferable. Whilst the foreground is in focus, it doesn't look defined enough (possibly due to resolution and uploading) for front to back sharpness, which makes me wonder where you focused? The flat "V" arrangement of the foreground rocks leads out of the frame either side rather than drawing me in, so maybe the spot wasn't perfect to shoot from to direct your view to the Nab, which I'm guessing was your main subject.

That said, I like the tones, and the panoramic shape, but would like to see just one main, sharp subject.

It's a good solid shot with a lot of impact. I cant really see how I would improve it.
