G'day Andrew. I can see what drew you to this one but for me the shot doesn't quite come together either tonally or compositionally. Without knowing the bigger picture (what lies outside the frame) it's hard to make any useful suggestions.
This is well suited to B&W with a modest increase in contrast (I extracted Luminance & Red channels combining them using Soft Light - this is just an example not a hard recommendation, you might have other ideas).
Regards,
Ian.

Thanks Ian. I just wanted a really tight crop showing all the shapes and angles of the crane. It's usually pictured from afar. I agree: it's an obvious b/w condidate. I'll try your technique: not heard of it before!
Best wishes,

Andrew
