I just want to make so much more of those clouds, the sky is stunning and slightly leads away from the boat. Perhaps a little time on curves to boost the skies contrast and bring up the levels on the foreground material a little
I like the composition and the new sky looks good. The overall image is a touch flat though so I have done a mod to boost the sky using levels, increased brightness and saturation on the boat and then lifted the shadows in curves.
I hope you like it,
I increased the contrast slightly and lightened the boat and tractor so they were no longer just dark shapes.
The sky is the best bit, but does need dramatising quite a lot. Great possibilities here for a very strong image, but the result is very flat and needs a considerable contrast boost.
I would crop the bottom and enlarge the boat and tractor whilst making them, by the contrast boost, more of a silhouette.
I can then see an excellent image here.
Hi everyone and thank you for the good comments on how I can improve the image. I agree the picture is a bit flat and wasn't sure how best to correct it, but now I can see.
I will modify it and post another version of it later
