Studying Values

I tend to have a lot of middle values in my paintings. Something that I have been trying to work on is adding more contrast in values at my center of interest. I have taken a picture of my painting and edited it in Picasa. Looking at it in black and white will hopefully help me finish this painting up. What do I see???? Mostly middle values.... I need to add some dark values near the shoreline. I think I will leave the light values for the sailboat and the boathouse. The distant trees look a little dark, maybe if I lighten them a bit they will look more distant. Advice and comments are always welcome. :)
