What i first want to point out is that the surreal night time light show is truly breathe-taking. What you have created here is a piece that illuminates the night and brings life to a piece that is otherwise usually darkened.

While at first i was taken away by the creativity and amazing display of a great composition, I thought that I had to find a flaw within it in order to write a critique. What I found was that I wanted a bit of life within the sky, i know that it is a small critique, but i felt like it was missing stars and a night sky to illuminate the rest of the piece. You have a great center focal, but it almost feels like it's missing a lot with so much black space above and below.

That being said, what I did love was the reflection of the lights and the dazzling display of a colorful dark. I like the fact that the creator took time to center a piece around something and brighten it with a great city scape, and make it a simple yet sophisticated look. Like a cover of a city you would want to visit at night for this breathe-taking scene.
What do you think?

beautiful. it looks almost like a painting with the lights on the water. i wouldn't have thought that was germany, i'd thought when i first say it the location was somewhere in america

I think the critique is fair, but as far as design goes I'd say that the lack of stars and water details makes the image a lot cleaner. From a graphic design perspective, this works well.

This is such a beautiful shot. The contrast between the dark sky and water coupled with the bright lights which seem to bleed out onto the water makes for a most compelling image. Marvelous!

Very well done. Very nice clarity and quality on the photo. BUT and its a minor one, even if I made it big; its not level. Don't ask me why, but I can't take it when a photo that should be level isn't :P

Quick and easy fix in photoshop then I really wouldn't have any other critiques ;)
