::: Greetings from Critique Club :::

Hi, as requested, here is an indepth critique of your submission.

First Impression - the most important one:
Love the wide lens look on this one. :-)

I'm not real fond of "falling" buildings. I think you could have minimized this with perspective and distort in photoshop and gotten a higher score for it.

Subject is clear stands out well from the background.

Technical (Color, focus, and light):
Color - It has a nice nightshot look.
Focus looks sharp.
Light- I have issues with the blown highlights on the left tower, but overall it is good. If you shot in RAW, you might have been able to deal with that tower a bit more.

To grow its vote?:
I'm thinking the leaning buildings were frowned upon in this challenge. They do tend to make people feel a bit uneasy at a psychological level.

Nice work overall, I do like this shot. I bet you are loving that lens. :-)

Hope to see more from you soon,

Could use a touch more contrast, as it looks a little washed out. Good capture though.

The building seems to be falling backwards.

too much keystoning going on here....

Good night exposure. It would be nice to have a little more going on and to eliminate the street sign if possible by moving the angle.

Great Shot!

Nicely controlled exposure except for the left tower. I'd prefer a bit more sharpening. 7

I like the night photo idea.

Lighting on building a little blown out but good color else where
