I first played with the white balance finally accepting the auto setting. The exposure was next adjusted, the highlights set to -100% to bring out the clouds, the shadow slider moved to 100% to bring out the foreground detail, ,,,, touch of clarity was added. This was followed by cropping to make the horizon level. I then had a play with vibrance, but decided not to change it. I then checked the highlights again and found that some of the clouds were “blown” out so I used the tone curve to correct the problem. A horizontal graduated filter was then used to alter the white balance of the clouds to emphasise the blueness of the sky. The overall exposure was then revised to what I considered acceptable. Finally before exporting the revised file I cropped the image to make the horizon on the horizontal bottom third line….
That’s it…not a great deal of difference but you can now see what’s happening in the foreground shadows and the sky has more ‘punch”
