Overall this is a beautiful image. The sky is perfect, the framing is great. I think this shot could be made even better with a little bit of post processing work. I would start off with a levels adjustment to brighten things up a bit. I would then bump up the contrast a bit to help the image pop. A tiny boost of saturation would really bring out the greens in the grass here as well. Using a warming filter would bring out a bit of sun in the clouds, rather then leaving them with more of a grayish tone. And finally, I would use a levels mask to brighten up the front of the church ever so slightly.
In closing, I feel this is a beautiful image. The scene is just gorgeous and a place I would love to visit. Keep up the good work!
dude - that one of the best crits ive seen... you actually tell me how to do it too - which sis great - i have no clue what to do post processing i will let you know when i have a new version up thanks so much!
You're welcome! I'm excited to see what you do with it. If you'd like, I can play around with your image as well and show you what could be done to it. (I could just use the copy you have posted if that's okay with you).
