The sky has very dramatic clouds, but the yellows pull my eyes to much toward the top edge of the image. It works better for me cropped down from the top, even though you lose the good cloud forms. Have you thought about pulling up the exposure of the right side a bit? Not so much as to match the sunlit portions, but it looks quite dark versus the left. Just a few thoughts, since no one had commented on your post.

Overall a pretty nice looking shot, but I agree with exactly everything Dave suggested. He took my words right out of my mouth.

Morning Dave,

Thanks very much for your very thoughtful and insightful reply. I'd not really
seen the "yellow" in the clouds not sure if it's a blown highlight condition
then compounded by the False Color Post Processing, but after you
brought my attention to it, I've not been able to figure out how to tone
it down or get rid of it. So, I can see where cropping off the top would
certainly help, hate to lose that upper turmoil in the clouds.

On the right side being a little low on the exposure, that area was shaded by the clouds
moving over, like the other parts of the image. I can see most all of the details
on that side, although dark, the mood created to me, is what I had seen
when taking the shot. Maybe, it's more of case where the Shooter knows what is there,
than someone that is viewing the image for the first time and not knowing the images
intent.

Thanks again for your help and reply, I may take another look at re-processing it.

Take Care,

Craig
