Great shot! Straightening, as mentioned before, is the only thing that is needed. Very nice.

Pretty cool shot, I really like it! I did a small perspective adjustment to level the left side of the photo, then dodged the highlights in the water and sharpened the photo just a tad.

Good try on the original photo, Diana

Bob's edit is the best imho - and it's sharp, nicely straightened, etc.

Well done on the 'team effort'!

Bob,

Great job on the reflections. I have to admit, me and the dodge tool have not become friends yet. That half a triangle light thing was a boat, actually a Naval ship, so I think that might have contributed to the perspective. It wasn't quite lined up with the rest of the buildings.

Paul,

I agree, nice team effort. And I really appreciate all the pointers.

I like this shot a lot. My fav crop is not the close up, but the one that makes it look like a wide angle shot, would look great in a frame as a panorama. Id print this one out and frame it, pretty big. big panos are awesome.

Only criticizm, the buildings are quite soft. It looks like you were not hand holding for this shot or it would be much softer, so im assuming its the lens.

Id try smaller apatures and play with the zoom to find the sweet spot. most zoom lens's have a spot thats sharper than anywhere else in its focal range.
