It seems to me, Tniu, that you have a number of potential problems with this scene; ignoring the camera settings which seem reasonable.
There is a bright sky followed by a dark band of background then the main action. And it gets a little confusing about what is the main subject. Particularly with that group of people on the left.
I think I would try cropping away part of the left side to remove most of the people. Then clone out those who remain.
Which should place the important bit around one third of the distance from the left edge, gradually fading towards the right.
This would probably leave you with a 5 x 4 ratio image. Alternatively, you could probably lose a bit of the foreground and keep the same ratio. I would want to experiment with a few different options then decide which looks best.
I suspect something around these crop options would have more impact from the intended subject.

Nice catch, how many times did you try to get the bubble, I see that it is just starting to break. First time there we spend about an hour or more trying, good sky like you have that was last year. This year spent about 30 minutes, terrible sky grey and flat, looks like you had better weather. The name of that geysir is Strokkur. Again nice catch very hard to get.
