The shot is nicely composed and has atmosphere, but it is not very sharp. You had a bit of zoom on and shooting at 1/25th needs a pretty steady hand! I notice you were using iso 100 - you probably could have used a higher iso to help with speed, without losing much in the way of quality. The shot is also rather flat - which may have been your intention - but in my mod I tried it with a bit more contrast and with brighter light areas, which makes a bit more of the rays of light. I notice you used minus exposure compensation, which suggests you wanted a dark shot, though.

There is a fine image in there but the technical problems spoil things. Two things. Even on that dismal day you could lift things a bit by adding some contrast and the main problem is the lack of sharpness. Software sharpening will not save this. You would have been far better at ISO400 and 1/100 sec.
