The Bridestones

By MikePeel  
The Bridestones, a neolithic cairn near to Congleton.

I took this photo shortly after I got my first dSLR; it looked like a good record shot for the Wikipedia entry on the Bridestones. The darkness in front of the bright sky doesn't seem to have worked too well though; can anyone provide hints/suggestions/examples on how to reduce this issue (aside from retaking the shot on a different day), and/or on how to generally improve the photograph?

Sometimes you can rescue detail from a washed out sky particularily if you shoot RAW (much greater dynamic range). However with the uploaded jpeg the sky is almost completely blown out so you'll have to cheat and either colour the sky with an appropriate (grad?) cyan/blue or blend in a sky from another image - see my mod. Of course in hindsight on the day you could have used a grad filter or HDR.

A nice mod by kalseru explains it perfectly, - you need to replace the sky.
