Good sky and reflections

I'd lie to see this cropped so there were either more of the branch at the right or none of it. What I like is the reflection and the slightly off-center composition of the main entrance. Is it tilted slightly counter-clockwise? Another niggle I have is the blown out lights. I wonder how the image would be if it were darkened a bit? No idea, I'm just guessing that might the reflections stand out even more.

This looks like a pretty scene. Nice reflections in the water. The building seems a little blurred, but not major. Did you consider two minor crops - get the tree branches out of the right edge, and if you need to adjust the ratio then lose a bit off the bottom to remove the tiny piece of shoreline. Another consideration would be to zoom in even closer (at time of image capture) to get more of the front of the building, close enough to read the banners to get a better sense of context for the 'Shakespeare' theme. You could have still included some of the water reflection, which I'm sure was quite enticing. :D May want to move the text up a little to get the 'p' off the bottom border. Text color is subjective to a wide range of opinions. Not sure that I like the color you've chosen. All of the above is JMO of course. Best of luck to you in the challenge.

The shot is a bit hazy. Score: 5.

a bit blurry

A little bit blurry. The composition also looks a little strange. (The water line could be highter or lower for instance)

Lovely reflection. I might clone out the bottom left black part...it's a bit distracting, but pretty minor.

nice reflection, but seems out of focus
