Here is what I did
- Copy B/G layer and blend it with soft light
- Add brightness and contrast in copy layer : brightness = 73, contrast = 26
- still in copy layer, adjust color balance to reduce the blue haze by adding mostly red and yellow. You can adjust this into your liking and into the condition you saw that time. Make it as natural as you can be.
- Still in copy layer, with opacity 32, I used gradien burn and burn the sky two times.

Hope you like it

First I used Color Balance to reduce the "blue" ting from photo. changed Yellow to -20, that removed took care of blue thing.
Then with shadows/Highlight, changed shadows to 20, highlight to 15 and midtone to 15.
This is the result I got.
Hope you'll like it.
Thanks, Vandana
