Taken at Swampscot in Mass US.

I was tring to show the contrast between the curve of the wall with the beach and the sea. I liked the curve of the wall and the light on it but failed to stop the sky being blown out.

And you have done your own crit. You should have exposed for the sky and sorted the shadows out later in software. i'm not sure the image is terribly strong, though, whatever you do. the wall and sea are not strong enough.

Looks like a very beautiful scene, in the mod i have attempted to address the blown out sky by using the burn and clone tool a bit patchy iam afraid but with time and perseverance i think you can make a fair job of it Smile, i also cloned out the tree which was immediately beneath the blown out sky, i then cropped from the bottom and a bit from the left to have the wall and the pathway lead into the sky at the end, and finally to give it a little extra something i played with the curves to bring out the light reflecting off the wall and give the sky some more prominence.

Cheers and i hope this is helpful, of course Paul has it right above when he talks about exposing for the sky Smile

Thanks for the comments very helpful especially exposing for the sky first and the wall later.

Prabh, thanks for the Mod, I see what you mean about the wall it really has brought out the reflection. Not sure about the overall tone though it reminded me of a scene in Miami whereas this was definately the cold and blue of the East Coast Smile
