Beautiful shot. I like the perspective and the way my eye is carried down the river to the skyscraper in the distance.

What makes this work is the perspective you chose - creates a very pleasing composition. And the golden and brown tones of the shot work quite well, too. Congrats on a great score!

Nice use of perspective, leading the eye into the picture, rule of thirds. Very, very nice.

I might have tried to alter the white balance for more contrast withe the sky.
Also I don't like the burnt out lights but what can you do.

I like the silver and gold tones. Too often these shots go orange, but the Gold works really well. I'd even like to desat the blues to enhance this effect.
