I see where you were trying to go with this and you've made a good start.

I hope you don't mind some input - if you do, just ignore me!! It's just that I'm trying to give back some of the help I received when I started out Smile

Firstly, you need to straighten the horizon - a MUST with landscape photography. Simple enough to do but shout if you need a hand. Secondly, the sky is a burnt out in places and so you've lost a lot of detail in the cloud - the use of a graduated filter would have helped to balance the exposure and thus retain detail. Finally, it needs a little sharpen in PS.

PLEASE don't be deterred by this - take a look at my first images and you'll see I was rubbish when I started out. Take everything you can from this site and you'll soon see huge improvements.

nicley put Debster, i was about to offer the same advise.
there are ways to recover the sky with mutipied layers but thats for later, move on and upwards, new pictures and underexpose a touch in camera and you can tweak bits back in most programs, but if you overexpose skys etc its very hard to pull them back after,
