It's a meticulous shot. However...

I see no specific subject. It's a mountain range. If I were in this locale, I would spend time scrutinizing the scene and looking for some aspect that captured its essence. Then I would take a picture of that. The most interesting part in this image is where the peaks are more dramatic. If you divided the image into five segments - 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 -- it would be segments 2 and 3, or maybe 3 and 4. See what I mean?

I have a vague sense that it's tilted a tiny bit to the left. But that might be an illusion if the range is angling away from the point of view from right to left.

I might also try to bring out a little detail out of the shadows in the foreground.

Two answers - it's all subjective, so yes, if you like it you should like it. But I agree with joedh that trimming it would help. I do a lot of panoramas, I trim off the less interesting edges so you get down to the heart of the photo, or the more interesting part at least. And something that wide is too much to take in. I keep my panoramas usually to 3 photos, and even then I trim them a bit.

Top and bottom edges trimmed too much, this image is fragmentary incomplete. IMO.

I suspect they aren't trimmed too much, it just appears that way because the image is so wide it appears flattened out a bit. Plenty of sky above those peaks. Take a small sliver out of that panorama and look at it as a single photo and it would be normal sky and foreground.

There is nothing in the dark foreground so eliminate it.

Unfotunately this is a not a medium that lends itself to images like this. There is no way you can display it here and have it retain any of its integrity. I have a like image of Manhattan made of of 4 rows of 10 images... stitched. On my machine I can pan through it and the detail of the skyline is amazing. Printed 28x50... it is cool to look at. Reduced to fit on screen... it's unimpressive at best.

Long story short... any critique of this is really really hard. Only thing one can really comment on is the image at the macro level. And honestly I really like the balance you've created. The cloud cover is great. The progression from dark, shadows, mid grey, then whites... will proportioned.

Thats about all that I can really judge at this scale. I assume there is detail in the dark regions. I assume there is great detail in the mountains themselves. And I am sure the clouds look great. But I just have to assume ... can't really judge at this scale

Not your fault nor anything that can be adjusted. Its just a fact of having to reduce it so much.

But I like what I can see... and I would keep at it. Seems the work was worthwhile.

Its by knowing and mastering all the rules that you learn which ones you can break.
