I basically only use my 18-55. Anytime I need something wider I just shoot a little panorama and it works out well. Wide lenses are much easier to shoot with, but a longer lens will generally look better if you can get it right.
That being said, the 2.8 could come in handy if you don't shoot with a tripod. I would get the 14-24 but just make sure you don't start only shooting everything wide.
Love that shot btw, got any more from there?

my setup recently got stolen from my car, but before that, my favorite lens was the 16-35 f2.8L. I replaced it with a 17-35 f4L, but the 2.8 honestly makes a huge difference and I'm considering selling that lens and buying another 16-35 f2.8L.
i'd recommend the 14-24 f2.8 because the f2.8 is so useful for lowlight and wide angle looks really good in a lot of exploration pictures. i personally never use anything past 30mm anyway when shooting with that lens.

As for the photo, there's kinda a lot going on.
The subject is vague and has little contrast with the background. The eye's moreso drawn to that little green doodad on the bottom left corner as it's the strongest contrast and almost larger in the frame. Then there's that strong line above the subject that kinda moreso leads you away from it over to those panels on the right. So I'm kinda bouncing all over here wondering what exactly it is you want me to look at.
A possible fix would be to crop out some of those panels on the right (maybe about where that yellow-ish card is on the one) so the top and bottom would kind of form more of a frame around the furnace.
Or better yet if you get a chance to shoot there again, maybe get more of a straight on angle that removes that green and red thing from the shot.

Why is there soo much conversation about a bad photo with terrible composition?
