I see what's been done here: greyscaled image leaving the fence coloured, everything pointing to the vanishing point at centre, increased contrast in the sky, and including an extreme close-up of the floor.

I think it's mostly worked well, and have a few suggestions... 1. Focal point. At first, my eye was searching for something to settle on: it was distracted by the black band in the near foreground, then tried to settle between two points: the white-topped person at the centre, and the right-most fence post. If there's a clear 'subject', then the viewer will easily settle upon liking it.
2. Composition. perhaps try cropping off the bottom 1/4, and darken the bottom edge. This gives 'composition by thirds' vertically and removes distractions. Try also removing some from one side if you have a picture with the clouds in a different place.
3. If you get chance to do this again, and want to get the foreground more focused, go for tight aperture, and focus on something 1/3 into the picture to achieve overall sharpness. Perhaps even lift the camera to ensure that everything in the viewfinder is distant enough to be focused.
Hope that's not TOO critical :o)

The sky adds to the surreal effect that you have already created with the processing.
I would be far more dramatic with my crop suggestion and remove the bottom half of the image to the bottom of the post on the left. Leaves a panorama, with the railings leading you from the corners of the image out into infinity.

I agree about cropping to at least above the dark horizontal line - it just acts as a barrier effectively cutting off the botom portion off from the rest of the pic anyway.

The selective colour i just think is a personal thing - if you like it fine, and it's well done. i agree also that the blobs of light are distractions which make the eye dart about looking for which point to settle on. The most natural point for the eye to rest is on the bright figure? at the convergence point - so try burning in the other white bands on the posts, not to lose them, as they help the lead-in, but just to make them less bright than the final point the eye should rest on

I've done a very quick mod to try and show it, hope that helps
