    Sun was blazing down today. Unfortunately, this would be my only chance to snap a photo today. Pulled off the side of the road between jobs and grabbed a photo.

    All the in focus tree leaves make the foreground a little busy and slightly distracting, and the lighting could have been better (harsh shadows). I do like the subject matter though, it is an interesting building. Nice photo.

    Agree with above; this one has potential for a B&W conversion.

    Just for curiosity, could bracketing have worked with this photo? or are the highs and lows to extreme?

    Perhaps, if you look at the image, the highlights are probably one stop too bright as-is. If you bracketed downwards, you'd wind up with black or nearly black shadow areas. The best solution would have been to photograph this at a different time of day, or perhaps on an overcast day with more even light. If those weren't options, than an HDR merge might have done the trick.
