Enhancing & Processing
It was a single RAW processing workflow.
First, I used the Crop Overlay instrument to straighten the horizon. I additionally made the composition tighter by cropping out the rocks within the foreground and the sky.

The Lightroom Preset Enhancing Method: Shark Cove (9,12, 16, 20, 32)
First, boosted the distinction and vibrance and in the long run, I enhanced the main points and decreased noise.
Plugins: DeNoise (noise discount), Topaz Element (native distinction enhance).
