Thanks for the feedback and votes everybody. I agree with the comments, when I first processed this there was a bit of detail in the building, enough to make out some texture in the trees and the pillars of the building. Unfortunately my shots seem to show up quite a bit darker on other peoples devices so it got a bit heavier (great description, BTW), going to have to do some more adjusting to my monitor to get consistency. The hot spot of the sun was intentional, figured the light would balance with the dark, although I would have preferred it to be slightly more to the right. Still trying to figure out sharpening and noise reduction, so will work on those halos.

I wish there was a way to get a little more definition in the trees and dome - more windows and spaced branches or something. The silhouette is nice but a little heavy feeling.

nice shot but more about the sky then the mark, and not striking enough as a silhouette. Would like more detail in the building, perhaps an HDR. YMMV, but to me it misses the mark.

Bit of a sharpening halo visible around the top of the dome.

One of my favourites although one (small) niggle is the very hot spot. I wonder if it might have benefited from some of this being cropped out along the top?

Nice shot - so un-californian though
