Awesome sky. Very dynamic coloring. I know that most people think that at least a little bit of ambient expression is necessary for a scene like this, and the amount you used on the mountain and ground plane seems appropriate and not overdone. But in the end, it's still ambient expression, and ambient expression is false because mountains don't glow in real life, not even a little bit. Ambient expression is flat and makes it look painted. Since the cave entrance is clearly man-made, maybe you can illuminate the cave entrance with campfires or something to provide some light from this side. It will eliminate the need for ambient expression, and it will let us see what's going on in a more genuine manner.
