Like the details in this - and your composition.
Would recommend that you work on reducing the highlights to get some details in the white clouds in the distance and the roof of the building.
You could do this by adding a curve layer and pulling the curve down. Then add a layer mask filled with black and using the brush tool set to white paint in to those areas. This would help IMO.
Regards Richard.

Thanks Richard. By pure coincidence it's only in the last few days I've learnt of the techniques you describe... and chose this photo as a first experiment. I can see now that the clouds would benefit from a little more fiddling. Your advice is much appreciated.
Cheers -- Steve.
