This is a photo I took in the early morning, of the newly risen sun shing through the clouds.
I have only changed the levels in photoshop (even that didn't do much!), otherwise this is the original image

Hi Adam, welcome to EPZ! Smile

I really like this shot. You've caught the early morning light brilliantly, I really like the cloud effect! Because of the low lighting I think you needed a tripod (or firm surface), this would have given you some crisp silhouettes on the horizon (as it is they're a little on the soft side).

I shall look forward to seeing more of your work! Smile

Ideally you need a subject to act as focal point with the sky as a background. The sky has to be very dramatic indeed to stand on it's own.

As above...you need a point of interest to anchor the composition. A silhouette would do fine, probably lower left to balance the sky shapes.

You also have a dust spot on your sensor top left, which you need to get rid of or clone out of your images.
