Rene is right on, without perspective correction the image is very awkward but should be easy to correct in Photoshop ("lense correction" tool). And obviously lighting is a problem. Interesting location, lots of visual "contrast". But I am having a hard time seeing a picture that "works" (which is obviously a very subjective comment).

And when you do get that photo, make sure to fix the wide angle distortion so the buildings don't look like they're going to fall inward. Pretty simple fix.
I see that as well but have not been able to fix it. I am using lightroom and have checked the option for lens profile corrrection which helped but this was with that applied. Any tips?

I don't use lightroom, but I do know that it has some fantastic distortion correction tools. You should be able to get those buildings looking perfect in lightroom.

This video may help.

Get Scott Kelby's book on Lightroom CC (6) and spend two or three hours going through the development sections and you will learn a lot about making your photos look much better with Lightroom. He covers all the basics, including correcting distortion like you have here.
