Interesting shot -- I just think the sky looks a little bit overly processed, and I don't particularly like the fact that the branches are underexposed, but not underexposed enough to silhouette. I think you might have obtained a more interesting result with a little silhouetting here (a result you can probably still achieve in PP).

I think the photo works very well. The under exposed limbs don't really detract from the composition, in my view.

I'm curious how much processing was done. I can't decide if it looks really processed or not because I've got a few film shots of skies with clouds a bit like that. I hate a lot of abstract photography, yet would like doing this sort of shot myself. I think it's cool, & it put me in mind of the backdrop for an Enya album cover or something like.
