Nice colours in the sky but theres a few things that bother me a little bit.

#1 The person in the picture seems a bit soft, its not necessarily a bad thing, just something that i noticed immediately and to be honest i'm not sure if her(?) being sharp would actually be any better.

#2 Theres a truckload of dark void at the bottom of the image wich serves little purpose, perhaps consider cropping some of it out or even increasing the brightness to recover some detail.

#3 Same as above but with the trees on the side this time. The top of the trees tend to blend in with the dark corner of the sky wich makes it somewhat difficult to see them as trees and more as just random lines sticking out from the side.

Apart from those nitpicks, i think you nailed the tones of the sky really nicely.

Overall I like it. I also noticed the person to be soft but don't think that matters here. What I would do is crop some of the dark area off the bottom, perhaps leaving about half of what is there now.

Thank you all for the critiques. I do agree on the black void at the bottom being too much.

But--I do like the black at the bottom and side (to contrast with the brightness of the sun, and the colors). Sort of like 'from darkness comes light'. At least that was the intention.

As I was looking at the person in LR, it looks like the softness is due to chromatic aberration. Maybe not though.

I did notice that compositionally the camera should've been lower (because as it is, the length of the girl's skirt is exactly on the horizon line).

Thanks again for the critique.

Here's the newly cropped version.
