My work was done with PS
1) I selected the entire sky. It was easy on this photo. Ctrl+L for the light level and to bring out the clouds. I also decreased the blue color in the sky
2) I inverted the selection, so I can work on the landscape without the sky. Ctrl+L for the light level + the density tool to hilight the grass in foreground and some parts of the little hill in the center.
3) I used the drop tool to decrease the contrast on the horizon line
4) I cropped the photo at 1600 x 1067 to give the 3/2 ratio. It gives a professional look, isn't it? ;-)
5) I added the black areas to retrieve the 1600 x 1200 size...

Thanks guys and thanks to Hyperfried for posting the very powerful original landscape :-)

Wow, great job! The original photo was really nice, but this is absolutely spectacular! Definitely highlights just about everything in a way that I couldn't quite get. Fantastic!

Hyperfried picked a gorgeous piece of landscape to shoot and you did a suburb job of making it feel very three-dimensional as well as though when viewing it, the viewer feels as though they are standing on the edge of the land, just looking out.
Both of you have good eyes to spot beauty. Well done you two!!

Art is the perception of the creator. Meaning is the perception of the viewer. acceptance is the perception of society.

Usually I dont'like much the RW, I prefer the naturalness of the view. But here the picture seems much more natural than artificial. Beautifull view plus a genial Pierre gives a fantastic picture. Merci Pierre.

You will be led to the knowledge of the internal things which are invisible to you, by the external things which you see before you. . . . Even so then, we can represent to ourselves in thought the Author of all that is, by contemplating and admiring the (visible) things which He has made, and ever brings into being. - Hermes

bringing on the greens was nice, but it seems the dark colors are a bit too strong. Like you went just a bit too far and overcorrected. maybe if you pulled back the shadows just a bit it'd help balance the colors a bit. That or maybe it's just a bit oversaturated.
