Default To little sun for Glint shot

I realise that this might not be enough sun for a good glint shot but wanted suggestions.

May I suggest a rework to something like this?

That might work, did you lighten it up? I see theres compression in the shot that you suggested.

Added more contrast and saturation. Image quality is poor because I worked off your picture. Your original will be much better.

You said it yourself, not enough sun to be a glint shot. Further than that, way too much sk and not enough under for my tastes. Needs contrast and more color. Or less color. Maybe a B&W conversion. All of this IMO would make it a better photo, though maybe not for RP.

Looks to be similiar lighting as this shot, but the sky might make the difference:

The sky, plus the frame is better filled top to bottom, not just blank or even clouded sky up top, the right side has stuff going up to the top and that helps

Sure, but from a lighting standpoint, it's almost identical. The cropping issue could be worked out.

OOPS, comment removed - I checked the size of the follow-on version, not the original. The follow-on is much better. I would suggest instead not cropping any of the bottom and cropping a bit more sky.
