More phone camera experiments: Window shot

I snapped this shot though a window at work yesterday, using the default setting on the phone camera. I tried using some other settings, but they all returned an overexposed sky in which the church was washed out almost completely.

The PicSay app, which I am testing, enabled me to fix the exposure so that the house wasn't as dark, but more was needed. I uploaded it to Pixlr, where I cropped it, sharpened the focus, used the curves tool to lighten the house without washing out the sky and the church, and increased the saturation a little (that can also be done in PicSay, but I wasn't happy with the colour shift it gave me).
