I like the composition: trees in the foreground, valley in the mid-ground, and mountains in the background. It gives the picture a depth perspective which is very nice. The only thing I would suggest is to increase the contrast. You might also try to retake this image in either early morning light or in early evening light which might a nice color tone to it based on the angle of the light.

Thanks a lot for your opinion.

Your best bet with this type of photo, with such a bright sky in the background and shadows in the foreground, would be to use a graduated ND filter, or a polarizing filter.
After the fact, you can try using local contrast enhancement to reduce the washed out look of the b/g. I have taken the liberty of doing this with Image Analyzer. This is a fairly quick edit, so more could possibly be done.

levels: bring left slider to first 'hump', middle slider to right
select sky only: raise saturation and adjust hue for pleasing result
blending brush: start point just above 'line' left from hue & sat adj, drag along line

voila !

(is this still a photograph, or has it been 'airbrushed?)
