If it wasn't mentioned, I may not have noticed it! Good colours, foreground interest and detail. Compo fine too, but, the title suggests the tower to be the main subject, which it is not for me. Consider ...

What an amazing horizon, love the color. Maybe a bit oversharpened though, the rocks seem to have their own colorful outline (halo).

I have to say this is quite mesmerizing

Very nice image. Might I suggest cropping the top of the image a bit, as it feels very 50/50 to me. A crop tot he top *which in my opinion would only make it stronger* would give this image the impact it needs to get a ribbon. congrats on this successful image. Where was it taken?
