I shot this in Raw and did 2 conversions in S7raw, one +1ev other at -1ev. blended in

PS6 & tweeked curves and levels.

Any thoughts or advise please, very much a novice.

the exposure is good.. so i think you did well in your post-processing..

the problem here is in the composition and depth of field.. this scene is quite busy without any one object that really grabs the viewers attention.. also, if you notice, your background is quite soft, i am guessing this is probably due to inadequate depth of field.. stop down your aperture(make your f-stop larger)..

best of luck

Many thanks for the advice. I have just looked at the exif info, the f-stop was f8. Thats the highest my camera will go. (Fuji S5000) . I wonder if the problem was in the blending...

yea.. if you are at f8 on your 5000 you should have nearly infinite dof, so it could be a blending issue..

I like the effect, a very "Italianate" feel.

Aside from the technical stuff, it is an eye catching landscape.
