again, pushing the definition of landscape, but since it's got some sky...

5d2 and 16-35/2.8

Killer sky, Chris.  I like the composition too, although I do find the keystoning a bit distracting.  Not much you can do about that unless you're using a tilt-shift lens.  I've heard the new Photoshop CC has a pretty good distortion removal tool, too.  Overall, really nice work!

This is a 1-click fix in ACR now.

The sky is fantastic but I agree with previous comments about correcting keystoning.

What's this key stoning you guys are referring to?

Convergence of the vertical lines! You can correct this with either Photoshop, ACR, Lightroom and other post-processing applications.

No need to perform a full 100% correction as it often looks unnatural.

yeah, i was gonna say... perspective.  if you've ever stood at the base of a tall building and looked up...

i guess it doesn't bother me all that much in the OP... hmm.

it wasn't even shot that wide 26mm, so it's not like it's over exaggerated wide angle distortion.

I would like to see it brightened up just a bit...nice image and colors though. Correcting perspective in photographs of buildings should be like anything else in photography...they are "choices we make" about what we want/need in the end. For books on architecture and architecture magazines - verticals are almost always straightened - but there is a reason for this. In other times and other applications one may (or may not) want to feel like the building is "towering above". For this image, I might straighten verticals up just a fraction. /B

Both are very nice- it's always about the sky/clouds.  I recently purchased a 24mm pc-e nikon in order to fix this kind of shot in the field.

Two great shots, but
--> the first shows some burned colors (orange clouds) in the sky which need to be pulled back a little and
--> the second has burned whites which also should be fixed.

Cheers

To my (uncalibrated) eyes, the colors in the first are much more plausible than are those in the second version.

Still visible banding / burnt orange above and a bit right of the cupula - when you know it you see it and don't stop seeing it ...
