A lovely scene, and a gorgeous day. The bright sky and reflection from the cliffs caused a need for some exposure balance that Ive done in the mod. The lower area is a touch dull and the image looks great when this is sorted out, and the cliffs have highlights toned down.

Its a wish I was there image.

The perfect composition, with the gates which takes you into the picture and the white cliffs, beautiful. I agree a little with banehawi maybe a little more Contrast/Color, but this is just nit picking.

Very much a "wish I was there" image. I have to say I much prefer the original colours, as the mod has come out rather yellow ( on my screen ) The only suggestions I can make are that you could crop a little off the foreground grass perhaps and if one of the gates could have been left open ( temporarily!) it would have been easier to "go through" into the scene, but as Mike says this is only nit picking and the original shot is lovely.

A classic 'invitation' composition. It asks us in to explore. If you look carefully you have a broad zig-zag leading from the bottom left up into the frame. The edge of the rough grass through to the fence and gate; then left along the top of the foreground; then right along the cliffs, and finally back left over the headland. That leads the eye through the frame, in a gentle, slow, meandering fashion. Very satisfying.
Willie has dealt with brightening the land, I'd perhaps like to lighten the sky a bit, just to distinguish it from the sea. I may have time later.

I've uploaded a quick Mod - I increased brightness and contrast a bit, and used the burn tool on the foreground grass to bring it forward.
Then I isolated the sky using the magnetic lasso and in colour adjustments I lightened cyan and blue. I think this pushes the sky back into the distance. To my eye overall the Mod gives a better sense of distance. See what you think.

Nice in general but missing a complementary colour for me. A person leaning on the fence in brightly coloured coat. Super pictorial record but missing a subject.

Thank you all for your comments. Banehawi, I now see what you ment but your mod seems to be over burnt to kind of orangee yellowish color as salopian says. Mrs woolybill made a good separation which I like better. Paul you opened my eyes yes now I see something catchy and popping is missing there. Next time I will think about that.
Thank you very much for your critique it means much to me.
