Was a little early so the sun set wasn't quite right so I made the following adjustments on the RAW image:-
White Balance = Cloudy
Shadows +65
Saturation + 50
Red Hue & Saturation + 10

Into PSP, slight USM to pick out the birds, resize, save for web.

Very nice. I suggest makes the horizon more straight, but that might now have been possible with the landscape, I'm not sure! This has a ver nice feel to it. Neat subject.

This is a lovely solution to the Challenge. But I wonder how it would look if you had cropped to just above the towers, including that flight of birds. While the sky is quite nice, it doesn't (IMO, of course) add much to the image or composition. And you have a great story with the building and the birds. 6

Very nice composition and the remains of the abbey lend themselves very well as a silhouette. Lots of other smaller details I like that add nicely without getting to busy with the flock of birds, detail on the hill in the background and the light on the upper clouds. Well done!
