"Is this too much processing before printing?"


US
          

I'm finally getting around to going through pictures shot from our late 2011 trip to S. America, and had hoped to print out a 16x20 print of the iconic Machu Picchu shot.

I processed the following picture in LR (contrast +24, black -19, clarity +45, sat +10, lens correction) in an attempt to give the printed image more depth and a bit more color.

I'm new to playing around with LR develop settings, esp for landscapes, though, so I'm wondering if I may have gone overboard?

Would appreciate any advice/feedback re: how you think the processed version came out and might look when printed? Thank you!
