Starting from a film scan (Kodak Ektar 100), I decided to:

  1. inverting the orientation of the clouds, to align it with the coastal feature
  2. tightening the framing, removing some empty sand
  3. enhancing colour and contrast around the bucket and the spade, with luminosity masks
  4. warming the colour of the overall scene

I like the final result much better.
