I like the overall effect. But if I'm honest. It is a little too dark for me.

I do realise however that this may be how you want it to look, as it has given the image a very moody and stormy look.

I agree with Garry. I'd add contrast and brightness to the whole picture and then, graduated filter style, darken the top half.

I really like the scene and your composition. It might very well be a fine candidate for a black & white conversion as the darkened second shot, for example, would still retain the "mood" you would like to convey.
