This was a quick shot. i saw the potential composition got out of the car and quyickly snapped before i lost the top of the sun. My aim was to get a balanced shot with barn and trees bordering left and right while also capturing the contrast between the foreground and the sky.

Beautiful sky with striking black on white in the foreground. I wonder if it might work even better with the lower bit of the foreground cropped off so it was a panoramic format, with the horizon lower in the photograph?

Nice capture. I think I would crop out a little of the foreground, but great work anyway!

At a first impression, this looks great. However, on closer inspection, it's only part of the sky that is saturated orange and there's an odd posterization boundary between the saturated and unsaturated parts. That makes the result look rather unnatural.

Given that the boundary between the sky and land is mostly in silhouette, it shouldn't be at all difficult to just select the sky and saturate that.

Thanks for the comments all. When I looked at the RAW image, because I had a polarized filter on, the image was well saturated, more so than the accompanying jpeg. There has been no saturation adjustment to the image other than that gained by adjusting the contrast. I added a 'warm' filter in post production which i think may have oversaturated the sky. I agree with DRicherby. when i inspected the shot in detail I noticed the posterisation, but as I was only posting on here (no offence ephotozine) I didnt play around with the image anymore.
