Great shot of a fantastic building. There was another very similar shot posted recently with a tighter crop on the main buildings. Might work better with that, rather than including the buildings to the left and right.

Like the presentation and sky better on this one though.

Utter magic!
IMHO, a marvellous image and contrary to a previous opinion the buildings on L and R allow the viewer to see the main building in its environment, as part of the scene, and not just a building on its own.
For some reason, I think of fish...
