Its good to see that you are improving your skills over photography,and i'm sure that TE has been teaching to make your improvement better.
here it is noticible that the use of f/4 has overexposed the sky,and if you got a little more zoom,the corner of the slab which is in right below of the photo seems useless.place urself on that slab and take the shot--would might been better.
your note regarding this mausoleum is useful,Good Shot Dude!!
