I think this is a lovely study of contrasts, forms, and textures. Well done!

Tweaks I would consider (at least today -- tomorrow might be a different story):

  • set white point on the building - I used 245.245.245 to avoid any clipping
  • slightly increase contrast on the stone wall and bricks, and also on the background mountains
  • add a slight gradient to the sky so it isn't quite so flat

Thank you very much. I like those improvements.

I attempted to take some of those suggestions using global adjustments. The WP was easy.. I still prefer your gradient sky and more local contrast in the mountains, but will leave that for later when I am patient to learn how.  I also cropped it a bit tighter on the right to remove some edge jitter.
