What a lovely shot. The colour works so well.

I'd be inclined to crop quite a bit from the bottom of this to lose most of the ragged stuff in the foreground.
Then I'd slightly desaturate the rest and straighten the horizon.
I'd also get rid of the fence (?) on the hill top on the RHS.
Hope this helps.

hi, i must admit i had already done the mod when i saw Brens comments above, i agree totally.

the main area of interest is in the top part so i did a letter box crop and the sky blue was a little oversaturated so i selected the blue channel and reduced sat a little. the fence i spotted but wasnt worried about so left it in.

must admit though its a lovely view and an area id love to photograph (Tuscany i assume)

best regards

A very nice scene, well caprured.

I think it can do with brightening a small amount; cropping a little from the bottom, and a lot from the right; and recovering shadow detail to bring out the colour in the trees.

All done in the mod,

Hope this helps,
