Reduce the file size and try again.

That’s better :)

While it’s an interesting picture, what it lacks for me is a clear focus. I don’t mean sharpness but rather something to look at. It’s all a bit undefined without a path or direction for my eyes (other than to the top right where the flare and lightest parts are). Everything is small and muted except for the sky, which is an OK subject to have, but I don’t think this is what you are intending. Or are you?

Would be interested to hear your thoughts on this.

… a further thought… take a look at what photographer Rick Allred says in his article here (Photo Tips Archive) on Basic Composition Tips: QUOTE – For landscapes, place the horizon line near the upper or lower third of the frame. Having the horizon line in the lower third will emphasize the sky. Placing it in the upper third will give more attention to the landscape. You decide which one is more important: the sky or the ground. If you can’t decide, shoot it both ways. You can also try the horizon in the center. Each will express the scene differently. END QUOTE

You have the horizon right at the lower third, like Rick says, which emphasizes the sky. But your sky is not as interesting in the upper portion, where my eye wants to go. Next time, try to split the horizon 50/50 and see how that looks. You are on the right track. Just keep experimenting.

Take all three shots (top 1/3rd , middle, and bottom 1/3rd) then keep what you love. I like the negative space in the sky. Calming and relaxing.
