Well, I don't know how the Topaz effect in the sky will go over here but I like the contrast between the angular features of the building and the exaggerated softness of the sky.

Isn't Topaz great at bringing out this level of detail? It adds to the drama of the diagonal composition. Dark clouds do get quite noisy if overdone, though.

I like it. I like the soft colors and the crisp details. The 'halos' don't look like halos to me, because they don't follow the edges of the building. They look like cloud formations.

Beautifully composed. The processing is a bit too strong though.

interesting angle, you have made it look 3d with the HDR processing

I like the processing in general, but I think the clouds are a little over-burned. I don't like the white halo around the building. Cool angle and tilt.

i like the choice of diagonal composition. i am not usually a fan of this type of processing (the sky seems overdone and has an unusual halo) but i think it actually works here pretty well

Like everything here except the processing goes too far.
