After cloning out the spot in the upper right corner and straightening the horizon I started to experiment with the settings. I found that by decreasing the exposure, all the detail in the sky was preserved. But it didn't really appeal to me. So after trying a few different looks I brought the exposure down one stop that revealed some detail around the edges, mostly on the right side. Then I did the opposite of what I usually do and I increased the highlights. This made the center of the image brighter, almost glowing with bright light. It created a kind of 'negative space' in the photograph that in my opinion, gave it an almost abstract look.
Then I increased the saturation of the orange, greens and blues; some contrast; more clarity and a slight white vignette and the result is below. It has a water color painting feel to it.
So the lesson learned is: if you're not sure if you should use it or lose it, wait till you have an opportunity to process the image and try different settings. You just might make something out of nothing.
