Crop or clone out the tree on the right side, and clone out the top tree at the left.
And Instead of playing with exposure and contrast so much, try adjusting curves, you can get more selective with your colors that way.
Getting rid of the trees is a good idea - thanks - they do frame the image a bit, but not really at the same time.
Adjusting curves - hmm, I've played with them before, the problem is, once you actually try to do it very selectively you have to be careful not to make any colours look false - but I'll have a ply, thank
Edit: How do I clone out the trees? The "Repair function" doesn't work in either form and leaves a green mess - and the one in CameraRAW won't work for anything patterned in my experience - yes I never bothered looking up cloning things out of images...

I love this edit and would never know the roof was too bright if you hadn't said it. It looks good and normal like this

I like the gloominess of the first, the subsequent edits seem to highlight the previously hidden bikes which are now distracting. There is also lens distortion which has created a weird falling in to the canal type look.
Thanks - bikes, something you can't seem to evade in Amsterdam - there are bikes everywhere...

I don't know much, but I like the OP version. The "gloomy" sky works for me.

If for whatever reason you want removing, pm me and will do asap
Don't worry about removing it - I placed the full version on the Skydrive so people can have a play with it - sometimes these "strange edits" can look interesting - not everything needs to show the "true colour" - I once had a play with a different image... http://www.flickr.com/photos/detlevcm/4524295048/
