I know it a bit of a lame title but it does fit.
Taken on a family camping trip in the New Forest, Hampshire, England. We were heading back to the camp site after a great pub dinner.

Too much blank darkness in the foreground. Also, even if the land did rise here, it would probably look better if you leveled it so it looked flat.

I would like to see this with the horizon levelled off. The land might have tilted that way but in a photo without knowing this for sure it just looks off.

I think that framing this with less of the silhouetted foreground might have been effective. The sky is gorgeous and the silhouette of the trees balance it well but everything under the horizon is more or less dead black space that draws your eyes away from the sky.

It would have been cool to see this in HDR. To me the lower third of the photo is completely wasted space. It's dark and the silhouettes that are there are very small and boring.

dramatic sky but the horizon is not level
