Jools, for what its worth, I like your intent, I like your fake grad on a long exposure (and I'll learn from that and look at apply it), but the picture just doesn't do anything for me compositionally, and in terms of lighting. I don't think any amount of post production would change that for me, so its not a question of curves, levels, HDR, etc.
having looked at your website, much of your images and work are excellent and I'd guess you have some success! This one isn't such a good one in comparison. There is no reason I can see to leave, and I'm not really understanding why the comments are resulting in you wanting to walk away?
If you didn't want to put it in the critique section, I'd have put it in the Special Interest Forums - Landscape Photography at the bottom (although you may still get comments!).
So no, don't go! I'm quite sure that nothing said by anyone here is meant maliciously or ungraciously, but different people like different things! However I'm taking something positive away from it, and I'm sure others are too, and I'm sure there is more we can learn from you and your technique, just as I'm sure you can learn and challenge yourself on these forums!
