4 sec exposure.

@ Katherine: just water with long exposure; on the outtakes you see reflective marmer:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/10000-14999/14867/120/758756.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/10000-14999/14867/120/758756.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/10000-14999/14867/120/758757.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/10000-14999/14867/120/758757.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Thanks to all for the nice comments (and nice score :)

Very interesting with the sky. The composition is unbalanced but its not like you can move buildings or anything.

I am coming back after the challenge to check all your settings. Please ensure that the focal length is included. What an absolutely incredible capture - well done. 8.

the lighting of this is so rich - and the low angle perspective really gives the feel of a square - nice

Very nice blending of the old and the new, the reflection is very appealing, I am not sure how the building are positioned relative to one another, but the composition could be tweaked
