I tried to tweak my monitor's settings and preferred to what I see from it right now... However, I am worried if I am within the "tolerable" calibration.

In my screen, this image is crisp and well exposed, could you tell what you see in yours? Exposure and Color Balance in particular.
By the way, I see it a bit warm in my monitor. Thanks in advance guys.

I am not too sure what you are looking for?? What I see is a reasonably well balanced image. If it were my image, there are perhaps a few things I would tweak, but nothing necessarily major. I don't see it as being a "bit warm" but that could be my monitor or my preferences.

I see what appears to be somewhat unnaturally saturated skies of a blue lnot usually seen in nature. Overall color balance seems to be neutral (not cool, not warm)

Looks good on my monitor, but I do agree with Wilt on the blue sky:

Thanks... I see it as over saturated too. Maybe I over tweaked the dehaze slider.

How about this one? I reduced the dehaze level and increased the contrast and clarity...

Still seeing a bit too much saturation in the natural colours. Some like that, actually I like that sometimes, but this just seems to overdo it a little. In LR I would consider maybe pulling the Blue Primary Saturation slider back a bit in the Calibration tab. If you did not want to do it there, then I would go with the blue and maybe purple saturation slider, as well as possibly a little negative on the green slider too in the HSL tab.

It looks OK to me, but I might back off on the contrast a bit. Personally, I'd have deleted that image before I got to that point? ; )

I just took a shot from a trip to the Czech Republic this summer, and from that shot I only the skies overlooking a large lake, to represent the range of blue that can be captured without exaggerated color saturation, simply as a basis of comparison to OP before and after. The wide AOV afforded a good representation of how the blue saturation varies across the sky, even without a CPL in front of the lens!

So to me your lastest post exhibits no so much 'oversaturation' as much as a somewhat 'unnatural hue'...the shot I posted are like skies I see at home in CA or most anywhere else in the world I have been to.

I agree with PhotoGuys about Contrast. One can see that the second image has lost detail, which was present in the OP photo...from the front of the building to the rider's right, above the red stripe area. This shows the difference, original vs. later post...

Even the OP photo had plenty of contrast and even a bit too much. Perhaps you need to tweek the Contrast setting on your monitor to make the monitor more contrasty.

.

I agree that the blue sky was way too saturated in the first image, and that it is still too saturated in the revised version.

The exposure looks fine. The color temperature looks fine, too....if anything it is a wee bit cool (based on the soil and grass).

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
