Why does this landscape picture look like a painting?
2

Hi all,

I kind of like this picture. What do you think?

However, it almost looks like a painting, right? I suspect it is my editing's fault, but I tried various combinations, and as soon as I cut through the haze, it gets this look.

I processed this file in Capture One Pro 12, with Clarity 27, Structure 26, Highlight 100, Shadow 75, Saturation 16, Kelvin 5563. Added a layer on the mountains with Contrast 3, Brightness -5, Saturation 12, Clarity 6, Structure 12, and finally a gradient at the top with brightness -17.

I also include the RAF file below in case you have ideas on how to improve it. Any suggestion is welcome, thanks!
