Welcome to ePhotozine. This is the Critique Gallery where you can expect advice and objective comments about your work.
A good image and composition.
Looks to me a bit lacking in contrast.
The sky is not too interesting. I would suggest revisiting the location in better light and more when the sky is more dramatic.
I have done a couple of mods (click on modifications above).
I straightened the first a bit too much and lost part of the tree on right. The second is maybe better.
I straightened the image as i felt the trees are leaning too much. Gave a 16x9 format crop, cloned out bush on left. Using levels I increased mid tone contrast and the sharpened a little.
These are my view and ideas. i hope you will get some other ideas,

Interesting to read Ian's comment, I've spent a while looking at this and the Mods and I still cannot decide whether this needs rotation! I guess nature sometimes isn't very good at vertical and horizontal...
Yes it needs a bit of contrast, and I suspect that that in itself improves the sharpness. Given the undramatic sky and light, I wonder if this would lend itself to b&w. Just to accentuate the simplicity.
Incidentally there are a few faint dust bunnies in the sky, it's worth checking a file carefully for those.
Welcome to the site, I hope you enjoy it here!

On reflection I don't think it needs much rotation, if any. I think we should trust the photographers memory of the scene.
