Hi Graham,
Not too often we see colour from you and this is nice. But please accept
this a question and critique at the same time.

Did you have a polarizing filter on?  And if not why not?

My immediate reaction to the scene was... "Oh my what a beauty this would've
been with a polarizing filter to crank the sky a richer blue and saturate
everything else."

I suppose that could be done in PS, but I'd rather do it real-time as the
shot is made. One other, and this is more from ones preference toward "rich
colours" compared to what appears as somewhat washed out appearance here.

How about a stop to stop and half darker? I'm a lean toward rich colour or
well saturated and it comes from days of shooting for magazines where full
rich colours were always the cry of the photo editor and art directors for
newsprint Rotogravure sections.
