Here's my take:

I processed it in LR 4.3 with following settings: WB Temp 6200 and Tint +21, Highlights -100, Shadows +26, Blacks -21, Clarity +25, Vibrance +25, Saturation +10. I don't use the Exposure slider much any more since I don't like the way it works in the new process version. Instead, I adjust the Exposure with the point curve. I moved the white point of the curve to 71,0%/100,0%.

I used the gradient tool to darken the sky. The exposure setting for the gradient was -0,5 and Highlight -40.

Viewed at original size I think this is the best offering so far.  At the reduced size shown I think it needs a touch more contrast (about +15).  That's the problem with downsizing, of course - there isn't a one-size-fits-all routine.
