Both are spectacular images but the first is rather dark. I think the bright cloud and reflection caused your meter to darken the image. I would have used a split neutral density filter with the dark half oriented to the left. However, not everyone has such a filter. Spot metering on the marble of the building would lighten it but it woud lighten the sky and clouds as well. Perhaps the best solution is playing with levels or histogram adjustments in your photoeditor.

It has been a rather long time since I was last in Boise. When I was there, I don't think this building existed. It is a beautiful structure.

I really like the perspective of the first photo. And, agree with Cal. It would be great if the building was lighter.

I keep meaning to get a split ND filter just for this purpose. I believe recommended to me by Cal a few months ago on a photo I had with similiar problems.
