This may be a bit over the top on processing but I like the bold reds and yellows.

Hey Judy,
I'm a huge fan of bold colors too......so I think they look just fine. In this case because of some of the larger dark cloud areas.....I don't feel it is as strong as some of your other images but you also may want to try going into those dark areas......selecting them individually......and going in with layers to try and bring more depth to them.....get the tonal range wider.......and that may help immensely. Try it out and repost it if it does work a little better.

I would agree with Roman's suggestions. I would also go with a bit less water at the bottom. OK to include some as an anchor but not enough to draw the eye.

I do like the strong colors.

Thanks Roman. I agree with your assessment and I'll see what I can do to bring out the dark clouds.
