Fine motive & composition

As I wrote in the subject, it's a very nice motive with dramatic sky and it's also composed well.
However, I don't like the effect of excessive usage of S/H function or HDR blending which resulted in very unnatural look (shifts of exposure) of the bushes and hills below the sky.
Also, you could have cropped it a bit on the left and the bottom to avoid a few items which draw attention to that corner too much.

Thanks for your feedback.
It's very well-motivated, even if i don't agree :)
It's very pleasant to be criticize by someone who really knows what he is talking about.
You're absolutely right about the bottom-left crop.
Thanks again and have a nice day

The basic idea is good, but there are some weaknesses in the processing: white balance (too much red) and colours could be improved. Some more contrast would help. The bigger problem are those clouds in the background, which are not optimal.
