Using the "Sunlight" filter in Nik Color Efex Pro 4

I generally use Photoshop filters sparingly and when I do rely heavily on the "Fade" command.  Recently, though, when editing the photo shown below, shot on a very overcast day in April, I wanted to brighten it so that it wouldn't look quite so drab.  I found that applying the "Sunlight" filter in Nik Color Efex Pro 4 twice really helped liven the photo and gave it the painterly effect seen above.  Of course, this isn't the appropriate procedure for every underexposed photo and, like any other filter that's used too often, its overuse soon grows tiresome.
