Some idea of what you have done would help. It's a bit too heavy for me - I applaud the attempt, but very dark. Something of a halo round the building too - could be HDR?

Cheers will look at the rotation.

Paul - it isn't an HDR as such I was playing around with a technique I'd seen a tutorial on loading in several versions of the same flat image as smart objects from camera raw. It involved trying to maximise the detail using a merged combination of inverted image blur and Topaz Detail to sharpen.

This seemed to pull out a lot of detail that wasn't apparent in the original I finished it off with a bit of pop using Topaz Adjust. It was a bit of an experiment really but I thought I'd post the result for comments.

Ah also I added a graduated contrast/brightness filer to darken the sky, may have inadvertently caused the glow on the building with my mask edits

The halo is caused by over sharpening as far as I can see. Its also visible in other parts f the image.

The straight original image could be fine with the rotation. You can upload it still as a modification here if you like so we can compare and perhaps give you some more ideas.

The overall effect is very much an HDR style, though arrived at by a different route
