My effert, which I settled on, with no cropping. There are some really good efforts to compete with here, however

I'm really liking all these variations. I knew that the shot wasn't the easiest to post-process, but I'm really inspired by all the things you guys have done.

I can't wait to see more!

Right-o: I'm in for a dime!

Thank God for the local adjustment brush in LR! Automask helps, but it isn't perfect.
Mostly LR adjustments- one pass in PS3 to create a decent mask to darken the middle hill area with a exposure adjustment layer.

A little bit of "halo-y" effect around some branches- that would be just more precise masking, spent an hour on this anyways, so if this were for production, I would spend more time getting the masking right.

Going for the "golden sunset" effect, specifically retaining the brightness in the foreground and middle distance grass/hilly area, yet deepen the shadows so the trees "pop". As well, I did boost orange and yellow saturation to give a more golden glow, and a bit of introduced vignetting to focus attention on the natural flow in the (I consider amazing) original composition.

Lots of interesting interpretations so far. Here's mine starting from the PEF.

I continue to be inspired by the things you guys are doing - and there's still time for others to enter! Over one full day, in fact!

The competition is now closed and winners will be announced in due haste! My apologies for being a little late in closing this, but all entries most definitely made it in within the cutoff
