Default Bakclighting - urban sky

A fairly classic example, but I like the symmetry of the building and the asymmetry of the sky

You're right the contrast is quite eye catching.
Wish the light were a tad more behind the clouds to heighten the backlighting effect.

The asymmetry of clouds plus the contrast between back lit building and front lit clouds is what makes the composition work for me.
