Default Old Grain Silo - Makeover

So I was out at Wallenbeen yesterday and I saw this old Silo, the guy there says I'm ok to take a photo, but why would I want to take a photo of such a boring old building... you should have seen his eyes yesterday when I dropped off the print to him... I'm going to make this into a tutorial in the new year... so keep an eye out on my Youtube channel JCPDVD. Would you be interested in seeing the process of converting this image?

Any suggestions for improvement or general critique are very welcome too.

BEFORE - This was a Canon RAW file I originally shot dark to keep detail in the sky



AFTER


And a merry Xmas to everyone too
