Looks slightly wonky just needs leveling out.

Also clone out the dodgy looking ducks because you can see where they have been moving in either your long exposure shot or bracketing. Not all of them, but just the ghosty looking ones.

Check your settings.or include them in your post, then folks can see what you were doing at the time.

I think I would clone out the two stars in the sky since the subject seems to be the city lights. Just 2 stars doesn't work, a full starry sky with or without a moon would be better.

This picture is not tilted. The radio tower is vertical. The undulating shoreline makes it appear unlevel.

A better angle may have been to shoot straight down the dock, depending on the background. As it stands, there really isn't much 'dock' in the picture.

Interesting picture. I agree that some further experimentation with shooting from different positions and angles might have been productive, but the distant lights and reflections are nice in this one. I couldn't resist playing with it a bit, mostly levels and white balance. I didn't notice the ducks until I had worked with it a bit!

This version is terribly posterized; just the result of working with a small JPG. I checked the tower and agree that it is perfectly vertical.

My thoughts returned to this image this morning and I wanted to add a few ideas. I think this shows several good things. For one, doing a night shot like this can be technically challenging and I think the exposure is well done. The subject (lights and reflections) is interesting to me. You have included foreground detail, which gives the image depth and context. The way some of the reflections extend into the foreground tie the foreground and background together. Finally, you have even included a whimsical element with the ducks along the shore. Good job!
