No - you've taken this picture like you would with a longer FL. Get closer to the base of it and shoot upwards. Here's an example - not perfect but you'll get the idea.

Very good tip, demonstration... I wouldn't have thought of doing that! BUT... with a 12mm lens there is no way I get the entire height of the building in that previous shot I posted. So taking it with a longer FL would be pointless??

You're missing the point. You need to get closer with either lens and point it up. You can do it to a greater extent with the UW, but it's the same idea.
