Great pic, love the colours. Could it be improved by rotating a degree? The buildings appear to lean to the left very slightly? Great shot though!

Nice! You have some complimentary colors going on here with the 'blues' and orange sky. The river captured those lovely colors as well.

City skylines are always a favorite image in my world of favorite images. This one, with its colors and just the presence of all those geometric building shapes, plus the watery foreground, makes this shot special.

Wow! Beautiful colors that you have captured here. I love how these colors are scattered against the clouds in linear fashion.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Amazing colours, like Albert I get the feeling that the river has frozen over and has a light dusting of snow. It could all be an illusion of course.
