Check the recent forum about adding textures. I don't think this shot alone is very powerful, but a texture overlay may bring it to life...4

Perhaps a lower angle here to get more sky. The bottom two thirds of the trunk seem to fade into the background. 6

The top part of the sky is excellent, though perhaps a little dark. Below that it's all a bit too bright and some of the clouds look unnaturally burnt out. Having said all that I really like the shot and the clouds at the top are super.

good composition. overall too pale, needs a boost in contrast, plants could also be more saturated.

What works well for this is a dramatic sky with good realistic color. What lacks a bit is the somewhat flat foreground area - at least for me, but I tend to like pictures with more contrast than some.
