Nice capture... a subject matter thats not to often shot. My only thing is I would like to see this shot with richer blacks it seems flat in conjuction to the darker grays and blacks.
The shot also seems a little soft. The pump as great texture and would love to see a little more of that.
I tweak my photos in Photoshop so if your a dark room guy disregard this.
But to tweak my grays and black I use the selective color adjustment layer and manipulate the neutrals, white, and blacks in this feature to give me a little more control on just those colors to be altered. Curves and levels can push your whites when manipulating the blacks. Also this feature will only work in CMYK or RGB so desaturate and or switch to grayscale then back to RGB, etc.
