What is wrong with this editing?

Recommended Posts

Good Morning. I am new to this Forum, but not to Affinity Photo which I use for a year now. I have recently shot this image (Olympus EM5 Mark ii - 16 Mp at 200 ISO F/11 at 1/1000th second - using the "Sunset" mode at end of day) and tried to edit it from a Raw file (attached). Sorry in advance if the below may seem trivial to most of you: I am disappointed because I can see quite some noise in the sky in the various attempts I have made to edit this picture... I followed the following workflow and wonder what is wrong:

- In Raw: Added Luminosity and Saturation. Did not add more Clarity. In details: Added Luminance noise reduction (slider up to 40%).

- Then I developed and used the "Remove Haze" filter which I very much like in general

That's about it really... I would be very grateful if someone could help me better understand what I did wrong, and how to get  to a better result (I have attached the Raw file for convenience)?

Or am I too perfectionist?

Many thanks, Fabrice

This is an impressive image, worthy of showing off in the Share your Work Forum. However, if you are asking about using Photo, this should really be posted in the Questions Forum.
