As a jafa I am probably biased but this is outstanding.

Greetings from Andi via the Critique Club and congratulations on your second highest scoring submission (to date).

First Impression: A well balanced long exposure cityscape, the reflections in the water are great and the colour in the tower reflection adds that little more interest. I'm not sure the boats in silhouette add to the image.

Composition: You got this spot on for me, not too much sky, the tower is nicely in the rule of thirds and a strong anchor (sorry lol). The foreground in silhouette helps stop you leaving the frame after following the reflections.

Subject: City scapes over water/reflections are not new here however I think this is a very good example of one and it goes without saying it meets the challenge.

Technical:30 second exposures can give you all sorts of problems especially at F/11 so I think this is technically a very good image. The more I look at this the more I'm thinking you should try an panoramice version but at 30 second exposures I'm not sure how it would turn out (but it would only be a couple of minutes of your life).

Final thoughts: Shucks, a 6.39 and only managed 32nd with one comment! I've seen ribbons scoring less than this.
