I am very new to photography and these forums, so I would love any C&C, thank you!

C&C per req:

First, welcome! It's a nice image, but there are a couple of areas for improvement. First are the blown areas in the clouds. This is a constant problem shooting this type of scene. There are a couple of options, both relating to filters. Polarizing and graduated neutral density filters will assist here (Google for more information).

Compositionally I think this would have been a stronger image if you had moved a little to the right and included all of the fountain which has been cropped off on the right-hand edge.

Overall, a good effort - keep practicing!

Just my $00.02 worth - your mileage may vary.

I appreciate the feedback guys, would you guys have any tips as for processing these through CS5?
I use lightroom but I would say try some recovery and maybe bring down the xposure a tad. Maybe even adding a gradient from top to bottom?
