Pass 1: Lab. Darken Sky using L curve. Hold clouds neutral and try to get sky color to 7:30 by adjusting the a curve.
Pass 2: Lab. Adjust L curve to increase contrast in the background vegetation (across the water).  Increase saturation.
Sharpen.

Not too bad without a k channel...
Try the K channel trick on one of your images...It really does work...

Greg, I did use the K channel on this image. 

Not being able to copy the K channel to the clipboard is a separate issue. The K channel works fine within CM.
