Another taken on my college trip to Bournemouth and surrounding area. It was a good chance to have a play with my filters.

I tried to give this a little more impact by increasing the contrast of the quayside and bollard only. This separates the f/g from the b/g a little to give the illusion of a more 3D image. It's only a small effect but hopefully enough to help.
I increased the colour saturation and using the different colour sliders, was able to focus on the colours individually. I think you must have used Cokin filters as there is a tell tale magenta colour cast in the sky. I used a separate hue/saturation layer to desaturate the magenta colour and make the sky a more natural colour.
I cloned out the small lens flare near the bottom of the photo and finally sharpened selectively.
I think your photo certainly needed the bollard to have more contrast as it is a focal point in the composition. I like the puddle reflecting the sky as this gives the image more depth and I like the sun in the photo too.
This is only an opinion and not meant to offend.
Nope that's fantastic Alan! Thanks for taking time out to play with it. Yeah I was using Cokin filters, Ha! you know your filters. The finishes image looks great and I Will give it a go myself. Thanks Very Much.
