Hi

Brilliant image.
I have just taken out the slight bow of the horizon.
Then I used a program called "Contrast Master" by Plugin Site. It is a PS plugin but I think it is also available as standalone.

Perhaps I have overdone it a bit, please let me know but I think it is just about right. And I have sharpened the image a wee bit.
The changes are all very minor.

Cheers

I would chase a little more detail in the (foreground) rocks, try the brush tool or levels.
Beautiful shot, you can only make it better.

You captured a really nice scene. I would have maybe shot from a slightly lower perspective and included a little bit more of the rocks on the bottom leading into the image. You also could boost the exposure on the foreground a little bit.

Hot damn.. that is a beautiful shot! I have never been to Thor's Well myself. But now I might have to make the trip. The additional contrast is actually very cool. It makes it look like there is some sort of massive storm on the horizon.

I like this "bombast-landscapes" - it works like Yes, Meatloaf ec for me.

Great shot! Horizon line and a bit of more dreamy looking clouds (longer exposure on the clouds) - are two things in my mind.

Looks very nice, but it really needs more foreground. Also, straighten the horizon.

Foreground is a little dark. Horizon isn't quite straight and a little too close to centre verses being on the top third, so lowering the composition and including a bit more foreground rocks would really benefit the image. But you've done a fine job editing as is. Keep up the good work!

This is an incredible pic. I would like to visit it - I presume spring/summer should be the best, right?
