    The skyscrapers would look more impressive if the verticals did not converge. With film, it used to be a hassle to correct this in the lab (or you couldn't correct at all in the case of slides); with digital it's so easy there's almost no excuse not to do it (unless one really prefers this perspective).

    The fore/middleground is maybe a bit on the dark side.

    Either your resize have altered the image quality or my monitor needed some adjustments. Either way, the picture looked a bit on the blur side, and almost soft at infinity. It doesn't give the kind of clarity that most scenic landscape picture yearns for. Of course, it's your right to express differently from the other landscape picture. But it just doesn't work for me.

    Points noted! but I not very good at editing... how to edit so as not to make the buildings verticals looking like converging?

    i think the resizing for web has introduced some artefacts in your picture. maybe you need to rework on that. i dont think your picture is blurred or oof
    regarding the composition itself, i think you tilted the camera a bit downards to include the boat in the composition. if you want to emphasize the buildings, you should have a little more space above the building tops. the WB looks a little bit off to me. it gives the impression of a cloudy day, but when i see the skies it gives the impression of a hot sunny day.

    dude... i took the liberty to modify your picture (if it's ok with you) to make it look more vibrant. i've also corrected the buildings' vertical positions. i did it using PS's Perspective Crop.

    Only thing left is to correct for the overexposed sky .... there's a nice cloud pattern behind the buildings ...
