Edit based on DNG file, tools used: Adobe Camera Raw, Photoshop CC 2022, Nik Collection. Tried to compliment the colors of the heather to sea and sky. Not sure about cropping, I don't like the fence, but cropping above it takes away too much from the foreground and loses depth - so I left it as it is.

A great photo
Did basic editing in Lightroom and Photoshop, Removed distracting elements.
Couldn't get the rock out, so I cropped it out. Tried to crop the fence out, but this took away from the balance of the photo.
This is result of my efforts.

Winners for Post-Processing Challenge #428

I thought this might prove to be a difficult image to PP and judging by low the number of submissions, this may well have been the case.

So that makes my thanks to those who did participate... even more poignant.

The main image problem areas to deal with, were obviously under exposure, Blue colour cast and an awkward unbalanced composition.

I noticed that many of the submissions still maintained various levels of Blue cast to them. I'm aware of the science behind Blue snow i.e. "surface melts and new overlying layers compress the remaining air bubbles" blah blah. But I'm sorry... for me snow should be white. The blue look reminds me of Blue Ice... a material that has leaked mid-flight from commercial aircraft lavs.

So all that having been said, my winner for this weeks challenge is: clack with this image, so it falls to you my friend to set the next challenge.

Honourable Mentions go to cg57.

As most of you know I also like to have a go at the image in real time too and when you see mine below you can see why clack's image appealed to me so much.
