Very nice composition, and very crisp! You made the sky work for you, as well. I like the way the eye is led from the colorful front gate through the castle to the building in the rear. I'm a little put off by the diagonal in the lower right, but I'm not quite sure why, and I don't think cropping would be a good idea - you'd lose too much of interest. So I'll just say it's me and leave it at that. :-)

Good composition, and I think that the dramatic clouds in the background help a lot.
