Tips for improving a B&W conversion

Hi, hoping somebody can help me with some pointers on how to raise the impact on the below. I think the picture has potential but just can't seem to get that extra "something" and it may be that the picture is simply not good enough, but hoping that it is my lack of skill in lightroom and somebody can assist.

The RAW file can be found at http://shropshire.unospace.net\temp\_6150438.ORF

Original RAW, slightly sharpened and converted

My B&W conversion in Lightroom

Any other C&C always welcome

regards ShrewsCam
