Quite nicely done...and good observations! The light was blown out a bit back there...I loved the water AND the sky, but that whole building was lit up like the dickens. I don't know why, because none of the other buildings had lights on in every room! Your modifications help define the buildings, and also let the eye not be too drawn to that hot spot. I like the work - and thank you! This is the kind of feedback that helps us get better at photography - knowing what to look for next time (and thanks for the comments on each of the others - your comments are very accurate and observant...and appreciated!

Hi Justin, I saw your post regarding the lack of activity in the Demo folder so I thought I'd play a little :-) Actually, I don't think you did anything wrong with any of your images, I like all of them! However, if you're looking for a few ideas to try, here's one possibility for this image. I thought the lighting from the building in the center was pretty much blown out, with lack of detail. What I did was pencil in some of the detail (not accurate I know) and then change the lighting to more of a yellow color. I also cropped a little of the sky to move the subject up from the center. Not necessarily better than your original, just different and something to consider.
