It would be perfect if you could just have moved the Shard a bit to the right so all the perspective lines converged - remiss of you. Seriously - this is a superbly executed shot and well spotted on the location. The deserted street keeps a formal clarity about this - I'm sure the architects would be pleased with this showcase of their work.
You're also [very] slightly out on orientation - probably less than 1º. But the fact the composition is unbalanced [with the Eye occupying the upper left] probably exaggerates that slightly. Drag a guide out against the uprights [if you're using Photoshop] and rotate counter clockwise. That would mean cropping even more of the Eye though - so it's more something to look out for in future.
I wouldn't have believed you could get a shot like that in England - let alone Ladybower [which is only around 30/40 miles from where I live!]
I've only ever passed through Naples [it doesn't have a great reputation], so I was surprised to see such a cracker of a shot - on a gloomy day at that. Superb composition and tones too - I expect it would look good in mono, but I can't help feel it would lose some of the atmosphere the blue tones are giving this.
I think you meant 3.25pm - in the afternoon (the EXIF says a 1/60th exposure!). I suppose this looks unnatural because it is unnatural - a fair bit of post-processing going on that's accentuated the dark sky against the sunlit landscape - an effect that's not so uncommon in Yorkshire. (Unless of course you've dropped in an entirely different sky...)
At first glance I thought it was blown [looking on a mac], but a bit closer scrutiny shows there's a highlight at the bottom centre of the dress that's considerably brighter than the body of the dress and I'm sure the detail in the dress comes out a lot more in print/larger size.

Very impressive portfolio, Ade. I missed the mod you took the time to upload on one of my shots, but I wanted to thank you for that.
It's especially appreciated when it comes from someone who is obviously so good at this game...
