That huge black blob of a tree really takes away from this shot.

Attached is a modest revision. Brought up the shadows, which gives the tree some detail, some definition. Increase in brightness. I adjusted the midtone contrast, don't even remember which way now. Increase in overall contrast. Basically, brightness up, contrast increase brings the darks back, shadows for more detail. Oh, and I sharpened, it looked bad. And reduced noise before the sharpening step.

Not great, I would say better, don't know if RP-good-enough. Maybe it will look better if you start from scratch or at least work from your copy.
