Greetings from the Critique Club!

Lovely shot, Janine, very well seen and initially I was puzzled by why it didn't do as well as I think it should have in voting.
I certainly approve of the pov here, great leading lines up those rocks to the buildings beyond, and that reflection is just magic. Nice colours and tones. The whites do blend a little into the sky, shooting a bit faster may have helped there.

But I think the big problem is that red shed on the left. It's just there, and unfortunately as it's such a strong red, it grabs the eye and doesn't really let it go. Crop out that whole left quarter, and you have a much stronger shot, with the eye looking at the buildings and that reflection.

Hope this helps
