You have an interesting view of the river bank and the statue but your picture lacks contrast - maybe a hazy shot, maybe an exposure problem. In my mod I have increased the contrast, mainly. It is an imposing statue.

Very often, by the sea there is a mist or haze as Sue mentions, an it acts similar to a veil in front of the lens. Light id reflecting of tine mooisture drops in the air. But, you can deal with this is you use a circular polarizer on your lens, - it will penetrate the mist similar to a pair of Polarized sun glasses.

Ive loaded a very similar mod to Sues, - its well done to get all three elements into the shot.

In addition to the excellent comments above, I believe this requires a slight clockwise rotation.

I have uploaded a mod where I adjusted contrast and shadow detail then rotated to make the statue vertical and finally cropped to suit.

Yes, been said. Image is very flat for some reason. May be mist, dirty lens or condensate. Slight clockwise rotation required.
