I like it because it's different, a good shot.

I enjoy this. You probably wanted to have the space above it, if so, ignore the next bit! If it were mine, I'd have gone in much tighter to make the most of that glorious reflection. By concentrating on the bottom left hand quarter you'd have more detail in the reflection and it would have more impact. For me, the rest of the building doesn't have so much interest. Just my opinion though and you did ask! Wink

I'm not really sure what sort of mod or critique you are expecting on this? The reflection on the building is only slightly interesting but is too small to be the main feature, the shot is in focus but ultimately for me there is nothing to grab my attention. The building virtually fills the whole of the frame and whilst at an angle there is nothing of interest going on, no dramatic sky, no interesting street scene below. Sometimes it's nice if the user who posted the shot gives us some insight into what they were trying to achieve with the shot, it takes some of the guess work out of critique.

This has potential, but the blue of the building is too similar to that of the sky. You needed the sky several shades darker to give separation from the building, then you have something quite interesting.
