I agree - the viewpoint is spot on, and it's a shame you had to work really hard in PS to get the tonality appealing, rather than getting weather that gave you great tones (and sky) straight off. Worth a return visit on a sunny day with puffy white clouds, perhaps?

There are two technical issues that may be worth looking at: you were at a low shutter speed, and maximum aperture, according to the EXIF data. Even with a tripod, this would not give optimum sharpness: upping the ISO to 800 or 1000 would allow stopping down a little, and maybe a higher shutter speed as well.

The data doesn't say which Canon you are using - the recent ones will (I'm told - don't know as I'm a Sony user myself) won't give much noise at this speed, and it's usually worth accepting a bit of grain in return for more sharpness. You can even make a virtue of grain/noise: you don't have to suppress it.

Also, though it may be my eyesight, I think there's a fractional tilt to the left - though this may be the result of a slight downward tilt to the camera angle.
