Maybe the last challenge before the new 'Fix my picture...' one!

What can be done to enhance the gold of the statue?
Here is a jpeg version:

Thanks for playing, John and Anita!
John, your rendition is very dramatic and you succeeded in extracting some depth in the very dull sky.
I think Anita's color rendition is very close: today is also very cloudy and I had a look at the statue, the gold hue is rather yellow without the orange tendency we tend to see with a blue sky.
By the way, there is some chromatic aberration or purple fringing in the background branches: apart from a selective desaturation, what would you do to correct this?

Michel,

I have looked at a really close zoom - the fringing is there, but is slight (I think).

The full version of ACR and Lr have a Chromatic Aberration setting here:

I tried these settings and got this - your image with only the C/A settings applied.

Let me know if it looks like it is cleared up.

Yes, John, I see the difference clearly. I do admit the defect is not very obvious and may be enhanced by the fact the tiny branches are colored and slightly out of focus. I tried a plugin call chromacute which was not efficient in this case. Ptlens can also take care of distinct CA. I have found that CA is a lens defect which is more easily seen in high res files (Canon 50D for instance) with wide amplitude zooms...

I just used a preset called aged something and then messed around with some of the sliders.
