I also used Nik's Dfine 2 just on the sky in order to minimise the noisy "jaggies" I found there, obviously the result of the required compression needed for uploading to TE.
Hope you don't mind: I just thought an alternative take on your beautiful shot might be valid.

You have captured a very interesting image here with great atmosphere and composition. It needed lots of post production to correct the noise, colour balance, levels and contrast. I hope yulike the result.
