Re: Too much retouched?

For me the image is dramatic but a touch too heavy, particularly the foreground.

I had a go at it in Capture NX:

I selected the trees & everything nearer and applied a little D-Lighting to it, just brightening the absolute shadows.

I used the Double Threshold technique to identify the darkest & lightest areas and set Black & White control points on them. This set the total dynamic range.

I used colour control points to bring out each poppy flower and each cow parsley flower, to provide spots of interest.
