use the sponge tool (on saturate) and go over the rainbow with it.

I think youve done as well as can be done with this. Theres not a lot of detail available in the rainbow to work with. Ive tried numerous ways to get more out of it, and Ive ended up no better.

The shot itself really doesnt need the rainbow to make it work, - though I know it would be nice.

I think you have done a grand job of it, not easy without making the image look over saturated.

The only way I could do it was to make a duplicate layer and apply multiply blending mode then use a layer mask at a reduced opacity. The problem is that it is imposssible to isolate the rainbow from the rest of the sky which will be much darker - see mod. You may be able to do much better than me by playing around with the opacity levels for the various parts of the sky.
