    Ya gotta love the sky treatment! Looks like you chose a great time of day too... the shaping created by the shadows is very effective. Very nice.

    Well the real person to ask, the expert on cool skies is Jon Mikal. This is just my feeble attempt to try it out for myself.

    Here is what I did: I took a desaturated sky, made a duplicate layer, selected only the sky, burned it, threw a sepia filter on it and then adjusted the opacity and smashed the layer in.
    I'd really love to here from Jon Mikal about how he does it though. I was just winging it.....

    It is a lovely shot. I can't really think of any way to improve it. Sorry if I am too brutal, but I calls'em like I sees'em.
