Hey Stephen, I saw your request for a critique in the comments here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sue5nC_S4ow

The architecture feels a bit hazy, like there's fog or bloom making it soft on that brightest part in the center.
The shadows give it some nice depth, but it's too dark on the bottom left corner. I can tell there's detail there if I look very closely, and it might look nice on a print, but viewed on a screen it's a touch too dark to appreciate.
Similarly, the cloud on the top right is just a gray blob that doesn't have much texture or interest in its center mass.
