Help me improve this image

below is an image i shot a few months ago along with their raw files.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/jxyxqyyydg9k1u9/DSC02178.ARW

Well below is the image i was able to process from the raw file:-

So what do u think abt the image ?? The problem i have with this one is that it's a bit too heavy on the left.I mean there is no balance,i mean the right side is nearly vacant.

So can someone help me improve it ?

One way to give it some balance is to recompose the image by moving the sun, similar to this:

Not saying that the new position is the best, but it suits my eye.

Nice one!!! Although that cloth(or whatever it is) is somewhat distracting! Should have been more careful while taking that shot!!

Hard to tell! Some middle-aged ladies were standing there......that's why many say before you take a shot check out all the 4 corners.Unfortunately I always forget do that
