I rather wish I had this composition in my portfolio, Caitlin!

Unfortunately I can't really offer a way of overcoming the digital sky. Normally I would suggest masking it off and working on it separately; the selection round those branches would be fiendishly complicated, though. If you had shot in RAW, the Clarity slider on Adobe Camera Raw might help. Another possibility would be to put up with reduced saturation and vibrance.

As you can perhaps tell, I am not a hotshot in the digital darkroom. But I LOVE your composition!

What did you do to make the sky look like this?

What does the original look like before adjustments, may be ablebto help if I know the answer to this.

I think maybe you've tried to darken down an overly bright sky, which has produced this effect. Still a beautiful scene, and love the reflections Wink

A gorgeous scene, with an interesting choice of format.

I don't know the digital answer - but I wonder if you could post the original image as a variant?

You might then get a few ideas from the people who really know!

It's a lovely shot as it stands, though!

Thanks for all your help everyone! Smile It only seemed to go this way when I put up the vibrance, saturation and playing around with exsposure Sad
When it looked better, I lost the affect of the image Sad Oh well! Wink

A lovely shot !!!....nice composition, & quality !!

Without seeing the original image, it's very difficult to analyse what's could upload
it as a 'version', then allow mods. to see what can be done ?????
You could add a graduated filter, as a gradient layer in photoshop, 50% opacity and use the layer blending controls, or if you have lightroom there is a gradient filter tool which you can use to control the exposure without affecting the rest, if all else fails ask Uncle Wink
