    You have a chance to capture a photo that worth printing A4 size or even framing
    on the wall, and YET you throw it away !

    Seriously, the blurness/softness in the silhouette buildings do not do justice to the picture.
    For goodness sake, if you do not have a tripod, finding a railing, bench or even rubbish bin to
    support your camera.

    Camera shake is very obvious here. The colors look too over done and saturated. Composition wise, you could have tried pano shot.

    i'm afraid i have nothing but bad comments for this one

    it makes it even worse that it was a brilliant sunset, wasn't it?

    the composition is horrible, the tilt is horrible, the post processing treatment is horrible.
    of all these 3 things, concentrate on the first, then i suppose the second and third will naturally come.
    shoot more!

    More of the reflections on the water would be better...in other words, tilt lower.
    Dun blame the camera...blame the one behind the viewfinder :bsmilie:

    yes overly done.

    the distortion is pretty evident, we don't need to show that earth is round in this case

    This picture would be nice if viewed thumbnail but not now because of the softness of the buildings which is key because its silhouette and outline is the main attention
