OK OK OK , I know another shot of the same place. Well I just love this place and for some unknown reasons (at least to me) , it really is not that popular a spot for my fellow singaporean photographers.
Anyway , I wanted to get the reflections again but this time with a nice sunrise. The reflections are not that good unfortunately. I wish they were better with less rippling.

A HDR of three sequential shots to get the dynamic range. Captured at 18mm focal length with my sigma 12-24mm

Well, I don't remember seeing it too much, and I think it is breathtaking. I think it is far more deserving of a score in the high 6's 7's. Not 6.4. That's just wrong for this photo.

But congratulations on such amazing photography. This photo will be a keeper and one you will show off as representative of your work long after the challenge is forgotten!

Oh, wow, nice HDR image here. Excellent reflection, colors and composition. I am sure you missed that senssor dust/spec while you submitted.

Very nice. Very small suggestion--I don't know if it would have been possible to include a little space at the top of the building in the reflection. Either that or cut off part of the top. Having it end perfectly at the edge of the reflection is not quite as strong. Didn't affect my voting--just a thought.

Wonderful colors. The PP on this wasn't too overdone and I like it. That sensor dust, however, is rather unfortunate...

I love the movement of color from warm on the left to cooler tones on the right.

Nice clean shot. Not sure if this is calendar material though.

Lighting is nice, but focus seems a bit soft and sensor/lens dust in the clouds is distracting.
