Composed from 3 images - one of Britta taken recently at a local BR station, the second is an architectural shot of some interesting appartment blocks in Woking, and the third was a sky I added, as the original was a tad bland.
After balancing the tones, I did some further PP, which I think sets the whole image off quite nicely.

In deed! brilliant work... rather hard work! If I were you, I will bring some hidden details out by opening image in to PS then go to Image > Adjustments > Shadows/Highlights > and then alter all figyres as follow starting from the top:
48,49,98, 22,50,30, +3 and +4 click OK if you are happy and see the diffrence. If you like upper part of sky darker then make sure you duplicate layer before you beggin and at the end simply select soft brush then click add layer Mask next to the top layer then brush over the sky you like darker ( make sure you have black as forgeground colour while brushing over ). At the end go to Filter > Sharpen > Unsharp Mask and then change Amount to 24, Radius to 93.7 and Threshold to 3 then hit OK Done. Hope this helps.

Thanks for all the comments.
@hasu: thanks Harry for taking the time to write out the shadow/highlight adjustment ideas - I shall experiment with them later to see if I like the results.
