I think you can improve your picture if you take more time and the right tools...
the OP picture is better IMO. No offence, but your picture looks like an "average" HDR. The OP picture is closer to what you really see in real life IMO.

... However, the telltale sign of a grad ND is often obvious on many images, IMO, especially images like this one where many tall buildings encroach upon the sky.
Perhaps on buildings that reach near the top of the frame. The top of your buildings are barely above the center of the frame where the grad ND filter is hardly working anymore if it is a threaded filter type. I'm not saying you used one btw.

I had fun with playing with Adam's Z image in the current PP challenge so couldn't resist another opportunity. Sure would love to acquire some of this fine gear. Thanks thapamd!
