Nice one, Tony. Have you tried either removing or filling the dark area at the top right? It adds another layer, which doesn't really work for me.

I like this, especially the action in the white cloud. I agree with Jeremy that the top right corner looks out of place.

Thank you for your feedback.

It is true that this image, despite much potential, has given me some indigestion.
Given that it includes a rainbow individual colour manipulation is very difficult without making the rainbow look strange.

Thank you for the input regarding the top right.
I will certainly have another look at this.

Could you make the rainbow region transparent, play with the rest of the image, and then recombine with the rainbow original? (Divide and conquer.)

If you cover up the dark area in the upper right your picture falls apart. Keep it!

Thanks to everyone for the useful advice.
I did a small crop to remove the dark cloud on the top right.
I also redid the tonal rendition as well as a slight change to white balance.
The result in my opinion now is much improved - the print looks magnificent.

Later today or tomorrow I will post the reworked image.
