Again such nice architecture there. There is always such beautiful lighting after a rain storm isn't there?
Is that the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?
You have a bit of lens flare? ( almost a yellow blob) bottom camera right in the trees. I'd clone that out to keep the eye from trying to figure out what it is and head it back to the beautiful detail in the building.
I light how the texture of the building came out on the left side.
