Taken on a windy, showery day on Roughtor, Bodmin Moor. I wanted to capture both the interesting clouds, the piled-up rocks and the on & off sunlight. The bird was a bonus.

Really nice shot but I think it could use a bit more punch.

In my mod I've darkened the mid tones to bring out cloud contrast and then increased the saturation of the yellows to lift the grass.

The bonus bird actually adds interest to the sky which could have had a tenancy to be uninteresting.

Nice shot.

This is rather good and it is the bird that makes it so. I would darken the whole sky area a little.
