    the clouds are very interesting

    Thanks for the comments, guys and gals. You both were right, and I've edited the photo to reflect your suggestions.

    Can't lighten the shadows much more, as there is no detail at all in them. This is because I metered using the sky/clouds. Is there anything that I should have done different to avoid this issue (other than bringing a polariser)?

    exposure bracketing, then hdr the beast :thumbup:

    At least that's the only way I can think of to get both extremes

    Ya I like it, a bit over saturated for me though, just the sky, the hay and grass is ok. If you have photoshop, it's an easy fix to make an exellant shot

    I can't tell what you did, maybe unsaturated the sky a little, but I think a little more unsaturated would be better, just my opinion.

    I desaturated the image a bit, to the point that it's showing less colouration than it did right out of the camera. (I had barely saturated the colours in the first place.)

    I guess now it's just a matter of personal preference, and I normally prefer bright colours.

    Thanks everybody for the comments, much appreciated.
