Workshop Note

I'm not sure if this is the look you were going for, but here are my steps (Photoshop):

1. Burned the clouds with a large brush at 10%
2. Used Levels to lighten the entire image
3. Dodged the church to increase its lightness
4. Burned the clouds yet again at 10%
5. Added an 8 pixel border

What this did is darken your clouds considerably and lighten for foreground so the tones are more even. In your reposted image, the clouds were so bright they kind of upstageed the foreground in my view. However, this was kind of sad, because the clouds were so delightfully dramatic! My burning was quickly done; you may want to take more time and do it so it is just how you like it.

In this workshop, the church and stones get more attention. I also added a border, which sets your image off from the neutral tones of the website background; you may or may not advocate borders.

Anyway, this may give you some ideas!
