Default Calm evening

It’s an evening shot of Vilnius (capital in Eastern Europe ) city’s one of business districts. Here it calls “Business triangle”.
I don’t sure about right crop. Is it better to leave more sky here or more river’s water.

You could probably crop off a bit of sky at the top since there is no texture to it and its pretty plain. Id guess about 1/2 inch above the tallest building. The water texture is nice. Your photo needs a bit of punch to it. A bit more saturation so there is more contrast between the darks and mid tones.

I have to agree with Bynx, the fixes improve the photo.

I see "Oracle" in the distance... I'm in IT (the evil department ) so I notice these things.

Great pic! Better after Bynx's edit.

Well I tried some crop, I've cut some sky and also some space form the left, to get all attention on main buildings and river

Nice shot of Lithuania's capital. I think Bynx's colours are great, and a crop off the original is needed... maybe on Bynx's edit I'd crop a bit more off the building to the left (which takes up too much attention imho). Thanks for sharing.

PS... I also have a feeling it is slightly tilted down to the right (ie. it is half a degree clockwise from "straight" - but I might be wrong, and it's just an optical illusion... or the effect of the bend in the river).
