I think you have taken your eye off the horizon line?

I don't think so. I think the river bank is angled this way. The buildings in the background are quite vertical.

Nice shot by the way. Very moody. I like it.

it seems that way little bit if you calculate from the bank, infact the the bank which appears to be straight in picture is in fact pretty round and left side of bank is near to me and right is far end, perhaps that creates that feeling

I really like the exposure - great color tone throughout. The rowers in the river are a plus.

If you straighten the river bank the building in the BG still looks quite vertical. And the river bank is the obvious sloping element. I'd level according to the river.

I love this shot, but if you look at the light post, I believe the river should be leveled, that would bring the light post straight also.

I am with Krismo, even if the rivers edge is not straight, the appearance of it being slanted makes the image appear tilted. I put a grid over it and the buildings, the poles and many of the other elements are not level. So that is the one thing that really needs to be corrected.

It's missing the "pop" wow factor that can make a sunset photo nice. It's a bit too hazy, though I understand that you can't really do anything about the amtospherics that are present. I agree about the slant- that needs to be corrected.

so i got one opinion about the slope in image, one about the overall haze, is there any other technical issues that i should carter for when i press the shutter on similar scene?

have anyone noticed the long shadow on the right side of middle building in water, that was a high voltage transmission tower which i cloned out, how do you see image being cloned out, it was my first serious try with cloning objects, on the left most building you can see the power lines too.

In my rush to keep the water from running out the left side of my monitor I totally missed the cloned tower being left in the water. You did a good job cloning it out but should also remove its reflection.....
