I took this the other day knowing that I would have to clone out quite a bit. I also played with the sky a little. I am pretty new at both photography and editing, so I am curious what others with more experience think.
Thanks,
Soup

first of all, that is GREAT cloning. my advice to you when posting a cloned photo, is to actually only post the edited one, and see if we can figure out where you cloned stuff.. that would be a good test to how well you did.

As for the picture itself, the sky is way to big. I almost looks like you were trying to avoid some of the foreground (and you were as it turns out). This would be a great HDR photo, it would really showcase the large sky.

Keep posting your photos here, and we'll try and help with whatever you want.

Good cloning. But the image looks soft. You can play with contrast, levels, etc. Wonderfull landscape.

Thats a pretty decent job of cloning. My only advice is to keep picking different spots when cloning. Repetitive patterns dont look natural.. This is evident directly below the church. Be rough about it. Nature isnt very organized and you shouldnt be either.
