Yes, very good. You've even controlled the inevitable, small area of blown-out cloud so that it's inoffensive.

I like the sky area, well done. I do not like the way the hills and the foreground came out, it seems to me that the shadows were lifted too much, rendering them in a sort of mushy and greyish tones.

Thanks for the comments!

Paulo - I have the same feeling.  I tried leaving the foreground darker but didn't like that much.  I did bracket this shot so I 'll go back and see if I call do a better job on the hills and foreground and blend that in.  The clouds were moving too much to work on the whole image. Thanks for the input.

Here is another effort that gives more life to the foreground and hills.
Improvement?

I understand the suggestion, but for my taste there is enough foreground light in the first version.

I prefer the second version, the photo is a bit more lively.

The foreground light in the second version makes it look, to my eye, unbalanced.

Thanks for the feedback guys.  Maybe I can back off on the light in the foreground but retain the color.

I'd be interested to see what you manage to do.
