I'd crop a little off the left and a little more off the right, as below. I haven't worked on the colors. Other people's PPware is better at that.

besides the crop: raise shadows, vignette, split toning to make it two tones.

^^ Following the B&W, you almost can't go wrong with NIK's Silver Efex Film Noir preset. Although, I think the highlights (in all images) are a little bright. Still, your original post is just great. as-is.

I agree with the B&W treatment. I would do that and play with bumping up the contrast. I would try to crop out the walkway with pipe handrails. That's a bit distracting in my opinion. If at this spot again, might want to consider taking the shot from the platform or up the walkway with a wider angle lens to keep the platform in the shot, but crop out the walkway. My $0.02

honestly.. i like the original. Maybe crop or clone out the grass near the bottom right as its a bit distracting. but the color in the original, though subtle, is very effective.
