Did you use hdr or something similar here Martin?
There is some good movement in the sky. The exposure shows up some lovely colours and textures in the building. But as with hdr type pics it does iron out any light and shade. It's all a matter of preference.
I am slightly unsure about the composition with the building very much dominating the centre of the frame. At the same time I find it a bit difficult to suggest how the composition might be improved without being able to move around and have a look for myself.

Thank you for your comments.
Yes I was giving HDR a go and concentrating to much on texture and not composition. The building is too donimant, I agree, I do like to be led into and around a picture.
I will have another go on a different subject.
I quite like the subject and there is a great sky with it too. My suggestion would be to give this a go as a B&W conversion and really push the contrast, particularly on the brick building. I feel certain that this would work so well, particularly with that sky and its wonderful movement.
It looks like there is a halo around the building, so would be tempted to convert one file for the building and one for the sky, and carefully blend the two together for a seamless join before converting to B&W.
Hope this critique helps.
I'm just going to say a few words about the composition because I actually think it works well. There are essentially two things you can do with a crazy-wide-angle lens like this: you can capture huge spaces in a single shot (possibly also leap tall buildings in a single bound) or you can get in really close to something while still keeping it all in the frame. This photo is a good example of the second style.
You could maybe have moved back a little, to get a bit more sky in the frame, but I think it's very natural that the building should dominate in a wide-angle shot like this.
