Hey there from the Critique Club

First off, always try to include some info about the shot in the Photographer's Comments section. It really helps out when we know what the photographer was thinking and what equipment/lighting/etc. were used, especially when you request a critique.

Camera Work/Technical: Well chosen settings to produce a nice, high-scoring photograph. I really like the WB here, as it rendered near-perfect tones.

Lighting: Impecable. You captured great lighting in all areas of the shot.

Composition/Content: Well seen, well composed and well captured.

My Opinion: I think you have a great image here, but it is a hair over processed. It looks like just a bit too much neat image.

I like the softness and the big splash of blue on the tower. Nice work.

I don't know if you altered the hue but I like the sepia like tone of the water and sky.

Your horizon is a bit (annoyingly) tilted, but, barring that fact, the shot is simply superb. Great job :-D.

Very nice. Nothing I can say to improve this under basic editing rules. After the challenge may I suggest cloning out that blue reflection at the bottom. It looks more like a pesky flare than a reflection even though it's not.

Nice photo, almost looks like a selective desat. Long Beach?

This was a worthy initial capture. Well imagined. Well captured. Well exposed. But IMO the post processing is so severe that it diminishes the image. There are also some lens artifacts which manifest themselves as a tilted horizon which distracts me.

I love the way the palm trees look against the misty night sky. :)
