However, the subject of the photo is not clear. Is it the Novotel, the swimming pool, or the blue glowing letter at the left side?
Also, I think the two persons standing on the left side of the pool seems a little bit distracting.
Some cropping might make the picture looks nicer. Nice try though.
1. Sky has no texture. It's boring.
2. Your focal point is the Novotel hotel. The pool, trees, etc are all soft. Corner softness is very evident in the top-right
3. There is no point at all to having the 2 waiters there
4. Too cluttered. What's the theme or subject? What's supposed to be the main subject here?
It really looks more like a "for fun" snapshot a bored kid playing with his dad's cam would take.
Thanks for your kind comments. Indeed I must remember to have good DOF wen shootng scenery. This photo was taken while I was having dinner at the poolside restaurant. I had no tripod with me, so I shot handheld with my 18-200VR with VR on - hence compensated some for camera shake.
