Salt Life..Beach Photo..Need advice how to get the most out of it.

I am inserting the original, a black and white version, and a tone mapped... But I am still not there where I think this picture should go telling the story that it has. I would appreciate any advice on processing this shot for BEST IMPACT and EFFECT... You have the original to play with... I would appreciate it of you add what you did and why.... I currently use CS4 and I have Photomatix, and Topaz Adjust Package to work with...I want to make a print of this at some point, but am torn on what shoud be the best direction to go processing... Yes I do have the RAW file... Shot with a SONY NEX-7... Thanks for your help...

ORIGINAL JPEG out of camera.

Tone Mapped +1.0EV, 0.0 EV, and +0.3EV combined in Photomatix.

Using Topaz B&W with my own personal settings...

Your comments and instruction on this one are MOST welcome...
