Now this I really like, it is so subtle. A very limited range of tones yet the warmer colour of the stonework contrasts so beautifully with the cooler colours of the sky without the contrast becoming in any way harsh or jarring.
I think the contrast in tones is enhanced by the contrast in form, the precise lines of the architecture against the amorphous yet moving sky.
