Its a good shot overall.

You need to be careful with the use of the Topaz filter, - it can introduce colour casts, and also leave edges with halos. Both effects are visible in this shot, with an overly blue tone, and wall edges with halos.

Looking at the composition, I would suggest choosing the distant hill as a focal point, which means cropping space from the bottom, and adding a little to the top. As it is, theres no clear point of focus, though the natural one to me is that hill.

Ive loaded a mod as an example, and also reduced the colour cast, and lifted the shadows a little,

Hope this is helpful,

Ilike the use of the window here and the line of rocks running along the wall. Not so sure about the triangle of sky top right, so maybe portrait would have been better?
