Really like this image. Love the reflection of the skyscrapers. Your lines draw me into the city, but at the same time the end of the railing prevents me, almost restricts me, as if to warn me saying, "Don't go there." A few things to consider, notice how your bench angle comes right to the lower right corner of the frame. Love that! Would you be able to crop your capture in a way that one of the angular lines on the left side of your image do the same without compromising too much of your composition? (Looks like there are maybe 4-5 options there.) Also, I would consider cropping a bit more of the sky (off of the top). Not positive that you would need the cluster on the "non-skyscrapers" at the right side of the frame, which also might enhance your ability to bring the left angular line(s) into the bottom left corner of the image. Just a thought. Another idea, and this is striving for perfection, with much persistence and patience involved, if you could have caught a near perfect placid pool of water for your reflection so that the images in the standing water would be sharper, IMHO, this would render this an extraordinary capture, maybe even shoot this at f/22. (Looks like it was a bit of a windy day.) Bottom line, wonderful image! Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for your feedback. That day was the wind, so only in this photo was a good reflection. Regarding the other framing, you can show that you mean?

Sacred Machu Picchu! Wonderful photo! Clouds come and go there so rapidly (depending on the time of the year that you are visiting). IMHO, if you could have gotten a similar capture with just a little more Huayna Picchu showing, that would have made this a spectacular image. (Just a thought.) It still is a fabulous photo!
