Have to admit this was a challenge to process and I'm not 100% convinced myself.

If you have any suggestions on how I might improve it I'd certainly welcome your advice.

Thanks for taking a closer look....

I can't say much about processing (I know little, and you haven't said what you did), but others may be able to make substantive suggestions.

There's an enormous wow factor here. That's votable!

The sun has clearly burnt out, which is always a problem: was on film, is on digital (though it's possibly harder to deal with digitally!) I'm not sure if this calls for HDR (which I don't do) or some other technique (which I also don't do) to combine a shot that has detail in the sun with one that has detail in the shadows. Definitely, you'd need bracketed exposures!

A first approach, though, might be the same graduated grey filter that people use to tame the excessive contrast of Velvia (and get perfection with more normal colour slide films...) to balance the sky and ground exposures in camera.
