With such a dark foreground I think the remaining amount of visual information from the outside view is a bit sparse in the current format. When you get to see more detail by zooming in on the full-size version the photo becomes much nicer IMHO. A portrait crop would be one option. The photo would ideally have been taken in portrait orientation.

In the full version I would enhance the dynamic range by lightening the interior. The walls have enough structure to add a visually interesting element to the image. You could try HDR-ifying the image with differently adjusted copies or work with layers to selectively lighten the interior while leaving the outside view as it is. If you change the whole image the outside part would become much too bright although the outside view would benefit from a bit of brightening up too in my opinion and perhaps a bit more saturation.

The situation would have lent itself for a version with the use of flash to light the interior. Did you take one with flash too?

Cam,
Thanks for the CC. I didn't use a flash. I like the full sized photo better also. I haven't taken much time to post process. I like the darkness. I do agree it would make a nice HDR.
