Good job with the horizon to emphasize the stormy clouds. Processing is a little much in some spots but okay. There seems to be a fake qualitiy along the tops of the trees. Good Luck. 5.

The skyline looks cut & pasted, very unnatural.

Dramatic sky, I also like the reflections in the water. What I don't like is that the trees seem cut and pasted, I guess this is where you processed the sky separately from the rest of the image?
