This makes for an interesting abstract or has the feel of an abstract. Otherwise, my feeling is that there is too much blank sky. There are nice tones throughout.

Anne Jouhtinen

Thanks a lot James! You should have seen the sky in the original shot, white and without any visible contrasts. You´re right, it would work better with more tones. All the best for you!

That was one of the advantages of having your own darkroom - you could burn in the sky as needed. Now anyone can do that with Photoshop. If this had been done with film, not digital, I would ask you to look at the negative to see if there are blocked highlights on it. I assume the highlights of the sky were clipped off to the right of the histogram on the original shot. You could have adjusted that to avoid clipping and then recovered the shadows in Photoshop. Film - Expose for the shadows and develop for the highlights Digital - Expose for the highlights and recover the shadows in Photoshop.
