It looks (please correct me if I'm mistaken) as if you've used a highlight/shadow recovery function in order to retrieve some detail from the original. Nothing at all wrong with that, but in this case it's left you with a image largely biased towards midtones - particularly in the sky and upper section of the pier itself. It definitely needs more contrast to give it the punch that (I feel) it needs, so I'd probably be using the curves tool - selectively - to address that. I'd be tempted to straighten the left verticals too, but that's entirely down to personal taste.
Otherwise it's great. Something a little different, which is definitely a compliment
