I took this shot north of Los Angeles near Mt Wilson. What do you think? Composition, processing, overall?

I like it. Probably a tad too much sky for my tastes, and I would get rid of the airplane trail, but I like this photo.

I like it, but I think extremely saturated skies are a bit cliche and tacky IMO.

When I look at this I just want to see what the rest of the mountains look like. Was there something wrong with them below the point that they are cut off?

No, I just wasn't close enough to the edge and had close foreground in the bottom of the shot. :( Also wanted to do 16:9 ratio for a desktop background.

Also, Maybe I pushed the sky too far, but I like it.

So yes, there was something wrong below that point. I understand now.

I have no complaints about the sky. I live in a place where the sky looks almost like that every day.

I would be inclined to agree with the above and say that you've over saturated the sky. From a framing point of view, I would have tried as best I could to go wider and get a wee bit more mountains, or else crop it a wee bit in lightroom
