A tip would be to learn to scout the area for a vantage point or angle before taking your shot. Whether you use PNS or DSLR camera..it does not matter as long as you have good framing and composition. Just my 5 cents...
A very gd way to improve is to imitate. Read up and look at pics of places you intend to go. Try to take pics of what you had seen in books that looked gd to you, and slowly adjust the shots to ur style.
i would say the colors are alright but the composition is weird.
it's neither here nor there, you can try either taking the front shot of the entire building or at the corner that angle.
and cant see your focus, too many distractions from this angle.
a nice place though =D
