Very dim light for 1/30 @ f/5.6 and 3200 ISO!
The clouds are lovely, but so much part of a different picture that they have to go, I think. I was then torn between cropping below the horizon (perfectly straight: good!) and leaving that enigmatic boat in. I went for the latter.
The shot really needs the extra space above the thumb: I'd love to see the tip of the snake's tail, as well.
The sharpening has worked well on the eyes - if you control these things, I'd suggest you avoid sharpening the jumper as well - strong textures with good contrast tend to look sharper than facial details. Such processing finesse eludes me, at least until next weekend!
Jack - you have the finest camera available, and an excellent lens. However, your EXIF data suggests that you are not setting them to get optimum quality. Here, ISO 100 and f/8 mean that you have used a shutter speed likely to give camera shake. Raising the setting to 400 would have given higher overall quality.
Lens. Stick to the 50mm. The perfect lens for your camera doing portraits.
This is my favourite cathedral, bar none -and I was born in Lichfield. But my 3 years at Grey College converted me. Durham Cathedral dominates the City, wherever you stand. Benevolently. Solidly. This view, which you see from very close up, is unusual, hard to shoot. Worthwhile, though!
