Worst Case Scenario

I LIKE COLOUR! And I think your colour is okay, but everything looks a little flat. There’s no pure white or strong black shadows.

I don’t know the programs you mentioned, so I can’t tell how techy you are with the post processing, but it’s an easy fix in photoshop ( though it will give the colour a boost!)

If I was a landscape photographer, I’d be using LAB colour methods. You can do amazing stuff in LAB mode if you don’t have to be perfectly accurate with the colour.

i.e.: no one will mind if the sky is not the right shade of blue, but if you get the wrong shade of white on a wedding dress, your the devil incarnate.
