I think you are going for the old world charm, with heavenly light streaming in.

To start with, could you get a little lower? the lamp post on the left and the yellow? with a lamp post on the right where the road bends really detract from your main subject.

The noise tells me you tried to really pull a lot of detail from the shadows in the front of the photo on the wagon, maybe some flash fill would work, or a tri-pod and longer exposure.

The longer exposure would make the light breaking from the clouds even better.

I think there is lots of good things happening, but the noise and 'modern' world seem to get in the way.

Hope you don't mind, but I changed the crop a bit, but i didn't have a chance to fix the noise... but it is just imho

There's a spec of dust it looks like on the top left corner. It seems under exposed a bit also. I agree with getting a tripod and using a longer shutter speed if you need to do so to lower the ISO...there is a lot of noise in this..

Thanks. too late to try this now but will try a morning shot with tripod. I tried to delete the other two posts but seem to miss something in the process. If some one could delete them I would appreciate it.
