Photomatix and Architecture

Last week I was working on a architecture project for my digital photography class.  Here is a photo that I edited in Photomatix:

ISO 250 50mm -2ev f/16 1/250

The original image was handheld.  I bracketed the exposure -2 -1 0 because it was really bright out.  The sky was OK, but bright, which is one of the reasons I put this in Photomatix and went with a more artsy look.  How do you handle skies that are not cooperating? any cool tips you want to share? Feel free to leave them in the comments section.
