I love the composition and the lighting here- excellent! Too bad the sky is blown though, but it looks like it would have been very tough to avoid it.

Thanks Adam! Appreciate the comment and yes, the sky was a net loss although I did manage to rescue quite some detail from the K-5's raw file by expanding it to 32-bits (EXR) and a slight tonemap. The full size file has still some sky detail left - tribute to the fantastic DR of this camera. I did slightly crop from the original take so very happy on your remark about composition - I generally stink in that area...finally getting better.
