It's beautiful perspective with great attention paid to the direction of lines and angles. The only thing I feel that hurts this shot is the unusual amount of grain in the top left corner and then down again lower near the single individual. There's grain throughout, but in these places it's noticeable and a lot of noise for an ISO of 100. It's a shot where some smoothing, maybe by experimenting a little more with shutter speed, lowering it even more to allow the clouds to track from behind could have created an interesting effect that might have brought out the contrasting sharpness of the lines of the building even more. That said, this is still a beautiful shot and I like it very much. The shadows beneath the overhang really give it pop and presence.
Hi, thanks for the hints. I think you are making a good point about the noise, I didn't notice the one in upper right.
I am using an old 4/3rds camera (E-300) so there is not much headroom for postprocessing, it's a pretty noise camera. This tends to happen during de-vignetting and channel mixing for BW conversion. I've got similar issue in this pic: [link]
I guess could do a local gaussian blur on the noisy patches.

The perspective and positioning is really well done. You did a good job taking this picture and the added black and white effects creates a traditional looking scene in the form of a modern one, good effect. Your use of lines is absolutely fantastic they really draw the eye to the subject, in this case the building. Keep up the good work~!
