My first thought was how dramatic the sky looked, added to which the leafless trees and reeds blowing in the wind, all of which made for a stark image full of portent. I like how the, relatively, colourful reeds and bushes in the lower section, play against the predominant greys. It's a low-ish key image, yet the white clouds create high contrast and bring light into the middle of the frame.

I had trouble in LR cloning out a few stray twigs along the edge which left strange halos of the twig shape. I suspect it might be to do with the adjustments to the sky and I read that they should disappear when in Loupe view, however, mine didn't. So a trip to PS sorted that out. Whist there I decided to adjust the sky further to bring out more detail and surprised myself by how much more could be achieved than in LR.
