Hi Karan,
Just a very quick process to remove the BG noise.
Using PSCS.
add layer via copy.
gaussian blur @2%
using a soft eraser tool, remove layer over B'fly.
hue/saturation. select yellows and increased saturation by 10%

I hope you like the results.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Hi Karan, I wanted to have a go at that sky to see what I could do with the post processing. All changes were done using Photoshop CS.

1) Select deep shadows in the bushes using magic wand tool: 50% tolerance level, feather 5%. Change mid tone in levels from 1.00 to 1.20.
2) Select sky using magic wand set at 50% tolerance and feathered by 5. Deselect the edge between sky and bushes so that the bushes are not affected. Use Gaussian blur tool set at 3.0 radius.
3) Use the smudge tool to go between the sky and bushes to soften the gradient between blurred sky and unblurred sky. Set smudge tool at 50 strength, 20 diameter and 24% hardness. Make sure you do not touch the bushes.
4) Use magic wand at 20 tolerance and feathered 5 on the brightest clouds in the sky. Alter brightness by -10.
5) Use lassoo tool on the grass to the left and darken slightly using mid tone in levels.
6) Adjust saturation for whole image to +10
7) Use high pass sharpening set at 50% for the whole image
8) Adjust mid tone in levels to -10 (ideally sharpening should be the last thing you do but I couldn't resist this).

I'm not sure if it's any better or just different but it does show some of the things you can do quite quickly and painlessly using a good image editor. I hope it helps :)

Hi Karan,

It has nothing to do with poor quality, but I felt it could use some enhancement for a higher umpf factor.

-USM 100% 0.9px 6 threshold
- Saturation

I hope you live the small difference

Karan

I have selected the sky only and ran a noise reduction on it, then cropped a toch to give a slight panaramic feel, mountains often suite this format, I have sharpened the picture a touch and dropped the contrast just very slightly.
