Very nice. Foreground element really adds to this. The movement of the sky gives the city a fast-paced feeling. Nice touch.

Gorgeous skyline. :)

I feel the foreground isn't adding anything though. The posed, crisp foreground just takes attention away from the sweeping, glowing skyline. Maybe just a wider aspect ratio on the crop that emphasizes the foreground less might work. A wider aspect ratio would also feel more cinema-like.

Interesting how bright the lights are compared to the darkness of the water.

Nice time lapse. Clouds are a cool result.

I wish the highlights (mostly the building windows) were a little more controlled, but that's a really hard thing to do in a photo like this. I still really love it, the lit rocks in the foreground really help out. 7
