    ND filters.

    Colors look ok to me.......but the foreground looks really soft.....and the trees/leaves almost look OOF to me.

    It's not about post. It's about getting the exposure right in-camera. With a white sky like that, you'll never get any detail back: it's blown out. you have to try to find a nice middle ground when your camera can't do it right. I usually leave my camera set on "highlights" so I can see what's being clipped in my highlights...that whole sky would've been blinking in that shot and I would've adjusted accordingly (raise my f-stop or make my shutter speed faster).

    Select the sky in background, delete sky
    1. in a new layer, keep the same selections
    2. find a picture of a pretty sky on google, copy, paste into new layer
    3. place new layer UNDER background layer
    4. use eraser/clone/etc where necessary to make it look 2 legit 2
    5. adjust background and new layer to look proportionate and like they came from the same photo
    6. FLatten layers
    7. Save as
    8. Upload
    9. Post
