Thanks, I have playing alot with Topaz, tweaking things just right. I also made two layers of this, the top one being B&W. I then made the door and church 100% saturated, while leaving the sky only about 60 or 70% color saturated because topaz, i felt, kinda made the sky too overpowering.

Topaz has some great software. Only part of sky that is even off a little is the white on the right side, but overall the photo works and is a keeper

I think this strong PP treatment works well also.
It's reasonably well suited throughout the scene though there is an area of obvious gradation of the colour tones in the sky just above the church.
The tree bits at image right could also be cropped to remove that small distraction.
Otherwise good work.
