Color adjust, Neat Image to remove noise, Nik Skylight filter to remove blue cast, Nik Brilliance and Warmth and finally selective sharpening with Nik Sharpener Pro.

Wink Re: Landscape Challenge

I've never been to the painted desert but I did live in New Mexico for 3 years. Here is my offer; removed date with clone and healing brush then a simple bright/contrast brought up the colors as I remembered them. Just a tad of burn in for the edges of the mountains. Oh, and a lavender 10% over-layer. That 10% lavender blends a multitude of ills in color photos. Loved this one reminded me of days gone by.

Re: Landscape Challenge

The first thing this pic needed, I figured, was something to occupy some of that foreground. A nice horsie, maybe, or a few head of cattle. A cowboy, an Indian, whatever. But since none of these was available I gave it a good stiff cropping instead (could have used more, even, but there wouldn't have been many pixels left).

Then it was just levels, curves, selective color, noise reduction, sharpening, d&b and a little more sharpening for good measure.
