|Well, it's actually done to show how cropping can enhance your work.|
I did also very quickly some other stuff in a developer or editor(Adobe in this case) such as contrast, sharpening and so forth. A bit playing with the sliders. Take into account this is done very quickly and there's always room for improvement.
Well this fellow will probably always be ugly;-)

|It's a nice landscape.|
As you allowed me to use it in a workshop, I did a little workshop.
1.levels to plat a bit with the contrast
2.selective sharpening of the tree through USM sharpening
3. cropping the foreground
Hope you like it.
And Merry Christmas

Hope you'll find it useful, Paul.

You uploaded a beautiful image. Well done...
I usually develop RAW images in the ACR (Adobe Camera Raw). This time I used your Jpeg TN-upload though.
Quick overview workflow:
1. Color temperature: made the image a tad 'colder'
2. Recovery highlights: I wanted to try especially that one, 'cause this isn't a RAW image; the slider was set quite a lot to the right to get detail/info/data into the white parts as much as possible . Still have to compare the results online...
3.A little more vibrance or saturation. Maybe I made the colours somewhat too cold.
4.I mentioned in my quick note you managed to get a good compo through that square; well I figured out it wasn't exactly a square:-) I thought: what if I should try to get a square after all. This wasn't posssible at first sight. What I did was the following: I took the crop tool, draw a square and saw there was a white space above the image; I cloned this space with the cloning tool using the green background.
5.Finally I opened the image in Photoshop in which I did some selective sharpening through USM in a specific channel in LAB mode. In LAB mode I also blurred your background a bit, having inverted the aforementioned selection.
6. ...and a white frame
I hope it was somehow useful. Thanks and I wish a very nice day.

You allowed me to provide a workshop.
First of all I want to say (type:-) I like your image as indicated in the critique.
I wondered if I could do something about the overall bluish through changing the white balance. At least that was my first idea. However through some trial and error I decided to adjust the exposure a bit and also to adjust the tone curve instead of the white balance.
Concerning the latter, I changed the graph in an S
shape. I have to say I did change the white balance a little bit as well; made the image warmer.
Finally I sharpened your work.
1. exposure; made it brighther; not too much to avoid degrading the image
2. tone curve; adjusted the highlights, lights, darks and shadows by using the appropriate slider;fine-tune your S shape!
3. a tad more saturation
4. white balance; a bit warmer
6. forgot to mention I cropped a bit, to apply the rule of thirds composition wise...
Hope you like it.

What I did actually...
1. imported your work in an editor; Adobe Lightroom actually
2. slightly adjusted the exposure; made it a bit darker
3. changed the colour temperature; the white balance
4. adjusted the tonal curve; shadows, darks, lights and highlights.
5. Some minor touch up adjustments
6. neutral frame
Hope you like it...
