Discussion: Making this photo better…

I shot this photo at dusk and it was much better b&w. In fact I like this pic, but am still learning photoshop (Using PS Elements 4.0 right now, but have a more advanced PS that I haven’t been brave enough to d/l yet).

What do I need to do to make it a better photo than it is or feel free to play around with it. Thanks for any tips, Julie.
