I converted your file in Aperture. I found no particular problem to get a result to my taste. I did not lift the shadows as much as you did to preserve depth in the picture. The clouds look good and the highlight from the sun stays intact, with enough detail preserved in the dark portions on the trees.

I added just a touch of highlight recovery and shadow lift after balancing color approximately to the light gray in the clouds. Done in a minute. I like the very natural looking results Aperture defaults mostly provide. Nice picture actually. Thanks for the sample in support of discussions with substance.

I placed this conversion to full size jpg here .

This puts the nail in the coffin for me - your version has the same purple artifacts around the sun as mine. Perhaps not a pronounced, but it is there.  Thanks for taking the time to post your example.
