Somewhat surprised you got no comments on this one, Don.
I'd have voted this a 5, personally.
It's a generally nice scene to me, but a landscape with rocks was a very common interpretation, so for an entry to go above a 5 with that subject, it'd really have to do something for me. I would say there's nothing inherently wrong with the shot, but it also doesn't have anything that really makes it super remarkable to separate it from the pack. Any time your theme matches something that is done by others in the challenge or has been done a lot on DPC, you really need to separate yourself from that pack in order to do well with it.
Also, I like the processing on this one overall more than on the other, but I would've toned down the sky a little. The blue is a bit extreme/dark, and not in a way that I would expect from a polarizer. I might have included a bit more of the crest of rocks to fill out the composition a bit more. It could be my screen (I'm at work) but you have some very light halo on the very top point of the rocks. Overall, a good photo that I would say doesn't really suffer from any particular flaws, but more that it doesn't separate itself from the rest. It's a frequent problem with landscapes, and hard to avoid a lot of times.
