I'm no expert but when I downloaded it the whites and blacks where blown ... so I had a play. I tweaked the curves to get the blacks right and then burnt in the water a bit

Hope it gives you some ideas - I have the same trouble myself Grin

Its a nice shot in thats it a little unusual for this site. The mono is a good choice, - and I would guess you chose it to try to handle the glare from the water.

When the glare is toned down a little more, - and the shot is cropped closer to remove the vertical white line, it can look better, - as in the mod.

I would have stayed with colour. The total range existing was tight due to the sun and that has made the blacks a bit heavy and intermingled. Colour would have supplied the difference in tones. There seems to be a fashion to use mono and it is often not the ideal vehicle for an image.
