A little straight on to the building, but it has a very nice feel to it with this composition. The blend looks natural. A couple of dust spots along the upper right edge and some grain / noise in the sky. The tops of the clouds have a look that suggests Aurora may not have given you the best ghosting result. I've run into to that myself when the edges of an object are a little soft to start with.   Posted: 11/11/2020 17:23:00

Nice simple composition without a lot of distractions. As Rick noted, the sky does not look natural. Perhaps a replacement with one of your single captures might work.   Posted: 11/21/2020 12:09:06

Overall a nice scene and the composition is a little static. Looks like the clouds were moving and the blend looks odd. Either deghtost it or possible use a different sky from one of your originals. I have a shot from the Tetons and I am struggling to get the sky acceptable before I make a big print.   Posted: 11/23/2020 13:35:26

Good subject and color with the gold, blue and browns. The composition even though straight-on is OK, but an angle from the right might capture more of the second building in the scene too. The image does have some soft parts and the sky is different. It may be some ghosting of the software not taking care of this.   Posted: 11/23/2020 22:20:37
