I think the composition works well and these type of scenes are very well suited to a monochromatic style. Find the loss of highlights on the nearest structure and the wall a minor distraction. It also seems a tad soft for me (this is personal taste) but steel and brickwork, especially mono, seem to me to be subjects where sharpening can be exercised with a little less caution. Overall a very fine image.

Interesting. Since you are using a tablet, I would be more selective about how I up the contrast. Rather than use contrast and levles which can be a blunt intrsument, my tendency would lead me to use a blank (or several) overlay layer and paint on the tones directly, this will give you much more control. Soft light blending will give a subtler version. Use a brush around 8-10% opacity and build it up slowly.

I like this image a lot, I'm not sure how you achieved the result and therefore how much control you had over the its application, but I might just have given the lighter shades a touch more space above the castle to give more emphasis to the shape of the castle, still a great image with plenty of impact.
