It still doesn't look natural.  However, if you like the way it looks, that's your preference.

After stepping away from the image for a couple of hours I did another round in camera raw from scratch and added more warmth this time. I think I'll leave it alone now.....I have enough versions and lot's of opinions. I like this current one.

Good idea. A near miss is still a miss. We all had those. There is always tomorrow.

I disagree
Most original fotos are "near misses", especially landscapes and nature. You can correct them with tools like Photoshop et al and make them to your taste, which, in the end, is all that matters
The important thing is YOUR intention. What you felt and saw.

Better than being a "Great Photographer" and ruining your ArtWork on purpose with monster signatures. an unequivocal sign of bad taste 8)

I went to Coal Canyon decades ago since I found a few nice pix by Phil Hyde in his work and it intrigued me. I wanted to find the magic spot there in the middle of nowhere in the middle of summer...

The last two versions are much, much better than the original HDR IMO. I think that Hyde would have been pleased with those, even though the original HDR is a nice HDR rendition though it almost appears that the sky was added.

I appreciate your comments. The first image that has that HDR look to most of you does not have a different sky added. I just admittedly over-processed it.
Thanks
