I tried to correct your interesting photo. I added a bit contrast, colours, sharpness and cropping.
I hope you find this changes interesting.
Greetings from Poland
hobbitenok2005 (149) 2007-10-27 21:24:08As there was complaint about underexposed skies I tried to darken it a bit using simple technique in Picasa 2 (by Google). It is graduated tint. You may see that workshop is also a little colder. Changed the temperature as my Tamron 17-50 while almost perfect lens is a bit into warm colors.

i only had limited space to work with (unless i cloned in some more sky, which i'm too lazy to do).
i also added some saturation. saturation is handy for emphasising colours.
lastly, i put in a frame. actually, i added the frame to accentuate the rule of thirds without adding sky! :)
hobbitenok2005 (149) 2006-04-01 03:57:35I sharpened the image a bit so it would not look out of focus when exported using picassa. Original one has a good DOF and major subjects look in focus even at 100% crop.
hobbitenok2005 (149) 2006-02-05 15:25:29Tried to do part of what Michelle has done in her workshop but on the original (large) image, then reducing size. In particular cropped the image, sharpened it a little with Arc.
