It's a very beautiful scene with very special light. Well done!
Could you please elaborate on the bit where you saw it but your naked eyes didn't see it? Do you mean that your eyes didn't see the scene this way but your heart did so you post processed it to your hearts content?
First, the scene was changing constantly because of the moving clouds. quite a few pictures taking around this time weren't appealing to me.
So because of rapidly changing situation, there wasn't much time to really "meditate", to. absorb, to analyse the scene.
Once at home, I could look at the picture carefully and even analyse it and thanks to digital tech. I then could PP to my liking. Now PP is not just for digital technology. If you read Ansel Adams, you would know that he, the master of landscapes, Yosemite valley was his home for many years,---lucky him---he PP his pictures so much. Of course we can do with our computer much faster, much better than he ever could dream of. But he dodged and burnt the pictures so much some times you can't recognize the original. Do you know another meaning of "to dodge"? it means cheating!
But finally, the trick is to recognize the potential of each image and arstistically modify to YOUR liking. You notice I emphasize YOUR. This is art, It is individual. If you try to please every one with your art, you will be uninteresting, bland, vanylla, generic. The final product would be no more art.
And finally you notice the composition, that is one of the most important ingredient of an visual art work. And at home, looking at it, it "seized" me right away.
