San Diego skyline by night.

I had nothing to do so I decided to scope out some places to take good shots of the skyline. What do you think of this angle? Please critique and comment.

Nice view, indeed..I especially liked the various boats in the sea and the reflections from the buildings behind, all together, making a lively atmosphere in which I used to living since my early youth
