Hi sues, looks like you HDR'd the shot, non the less I think it is a superb capture. Get a vote from me. I hope more will follow, well done.

Excellent composition and perhaps great lighting and colour also, however I am not sure of the pp treatment. I am intrigued how the original image looks like?

Hi Sue, This photo shows a lot of promise in regards to your composition, but falls down badly in the processing department. I do not know exactly you are doing bar the fact that the image is recorded in jpeg format and displays a strong over processed look, witness the halo effect around the large rock/focal point in your picture, it also looks as if it is oversharpend as the end result looks very harsh giving an un natural look, for most images little or no sharpening is required, many cameras apply a degree of additional sharpening to start with! To overcome the contrast problems that are leading to that halo, there are a number of differing routes so I won't go into detail, HDR is already mentioned, another good starting point is to shoot in your cameras RAW format if you can, as it's a lot more forgiving than jpegs in the processing department, the use of Nutral Density Graduate Filters at the taking stage can be helpful in the right situation, but there is a lot of advanced technique within all these methods so you might do well to go and get some tuition in the relative areas. Online tutorials, joining a local photo class or club are just some options, you clearly have agood eye so taking this further would be well worthwhile. In the meantime just go a lot more gently with those sliders in your editor.
Good luck, Andy M

Yep I agree I'm afraid. The sky looks great, and I like the birds, but the HDR halo effect doesn't work for me.

Lots of advice above....
...but the composition is great, so you certainly have an eye for the shot. For me, a little less treatment and straighten up the horizon and you will have a cracking shot!
