I think you did an exceptional job with the exposure and post processing. However, I can't find a focal point in the image. Initially my eye followed the tallest tree to the top of the photo. Then it was drawn to the brightest part of the sky. After that, I looked for an anchor spot and couldn't find one.

I could see the bottom left quarter of the image working as a print on the wall in an abstract sort of way (tree branches from top to bottom and side to side). The hint of color in the sky would be enough to draw my attention from across the room and the abstractness would invite me to explore the image without feeling the need for an anchor point.

Thanks! I agree with the complete lack of focal point, I wasn't even sure what I was taking a picture of at the time; the branches? The sun? The clouds?

And btw, there is no post-processing involved. All I did was resize the picture to 800 wide, nothing else. Unless you count converting the RAW file, but even that turned out to pretty much match the in-camera JPG.
