Removed buildings in background, changed the sky, removed sign and wire on building, added gradient colour layer, adjustment layers, shadows and grain layer (to aid in photographic look). See SBS for full info and WIP GIF in Step 13
EDIT: Flipped clouds :D (5 years and 1626 days ago)

Great looking image. My only observation is the light on the building is from the left, and the light on the clouds from the right. Might want to flip it. GL author.

This is very elegant looking.
I agree with CMYK about the clouds. Great colors, though!

author says:

Thanks guys! Done! Don't know how I could have missed that, doh!
