Hi Andrew, I like the composition, but the mono conversion is very flat with the tonal range being very small. I have loaded a mod were I have adjusted the highlights and contrast to give some depth to your picture. I have lifted the highlights to show the tonal changes in the stone work, increasing the contrast has silhouetted the tree against the brightness on the skyline.

If you use a picture editor such as photoshop etc you can make the adjustments I have done by using the levels histogram and moving the white highlight marker to the edge of the histogram and do the same with the black marker this balances your image across the full range, you can then adjust the grey mid-tone marker either left or right to adjust the tones as you wish.

Hope this helps.
