If you wish to keep this composition, the top part of the building is heavily over exposed. You could try burning in, but I suspect some areas are too far gone and you would get a muddy image. Better to expose for the top when shooting, lightening the bottom later. If you are happy with the wide angle distortion I would have walked in much closer, keeping the low viewpoint, but only including the doorway.
You could zoom in, but that would change the perspective. I'm not sure the girl is very sharp? May be resizing, but without the info, difficult to tell. For set pieces like this I would use a tripod.
Its a nice idea, but i feel the composition is a little unbalanced from the point that the building becomes the primary element competing for attention against the model, which you only notice in the overall scheme of things later...like Paul says there is also the issue of overexposure on the top right which immediately draws the eye. Have done a mod where i have cropped down from the top to sort of balance the image and give the model a bit more prominence...i couldnt be sure but there also seems to be a greenish cast to the image, have tried to correct that in the mod. The model doesnt seem as sharp though as the rest of the building could be due to the lo-res image uploaded.
Hope this helps.
I think I know what your trying to achieve here but for me its not worked. I think the model should be in sharp focus and the building soft, unfortunately as said above the building is in focus and the model is soft and I find this confuses my eye as to what I should be looking at. Its hard to give any constructive advice on how you took your image as you haven't given any details except camera and lens and a lot of advice can be given if we know how your camera is set up.
I'm sorry your first image isn't getting a particularly good review but we are all here to help so use the information given in the comments and see if you can improve the issues mentioned and let us see the results.
It;s always good to see improvement and we have all made errors in our images.
Welcome to EPZ Mohamed.
There are a few tip you need to know about posting images to the site, and how to re size and sharpen, and you can find some information here: https://www.ephotozine.com/user/banehawi-20793/blog/inside-the-critique-team--le...
The idea is nice; the model is too small, - not significant; and shooting from the side with a wide angle lens gives a lot of horizontal distortion. You may want the diatortion, so thats OK.
I have loaded a mod with the shot a lot sharper, and some lens distortion corrected.
I hope you find useful information in the link, and enjoy the site.
My advice would be forget the rather boring building and fill the frame with the attractive lady.
