Hi @dirksagwitz ,
Your photo has one issue. This is a problem that a lot of people face and is quite common. Let me illustrate that.
This is how your photo looks without exposure correction and filmic:
Now we increase the exposure and completely ignore the overexposure. We are now only interested in the meadow and the entire field up to the forest:
It is absolutely flat, there is hardly any difference in brightness.
Only when you increase the contrast very high, the structures and shadings stand out:
So there is a combination of two things here: not only is the main subject in the shadows, the shadow itself has hardly any differences in brightness. Both elements are, so to say, diametrically opposed to the absolutely contrasting, dramatic and very dynamic sky, that is, the third element that mercilessly attracts attention.
Here, so to speak, the “three-dimensionality” of the field that could counter the sky is missing.
This can be partly solved by using the technique of dodging and burning, by artificially creating the “three-dimensionality” through local modeling of the lighting conditions. For example, you can gently lighten this area here:
