    Just comment on the technical aspect:
    For landscape, try to use the lowest ISO whenever it is possible to do so, without risking too low shuttle speed or shallow aperture, just like selecting the finest grain film for landscape.

    I opened up the shadow parts with exposure/highlights then made the skies and trees more blue and green thru "replace color" then made the skies a bit more blue with a blue gradient layer set to darken mode, and lastly sharpened.

    Ah, much better! feel like someone remove the blindfold from my eyes.

    Pic-wise the sky is bland, the green dustbin is horrible, the cut tree stumps in the left is also ugly, and the bent lamppost with flag makes me feel the pic is distorted - or at least the yellow flag make it appears bent.

    So a pic - cannot make it.
