it is a good landscape shot. but the horizon is not right. the image is also lacking sharpness and contrast. i have uploaded a modification here and added canvas in such a way as to correct the horizon, filled the canvas by cloning from nearest pixels. i have also adjusted the curves and sharpened the image. but i have done this very quickly and you can do it yourself better by taking some time.

i guess there was a bright sunlight at the scene and in that case the polarizing and nd grad filter work well to give better definition of the sky. the sky portion of this image is not good enough. try the rule of third to give better proportion for the sky and the land and use those filters if possible. you can get obviously a better result.

Hope it helps,

Hi Somnath,
Thank you for your constructive comments I will take it all on board,it is very rare to find Manhatton as clear as it was that day, it is normally covered by a mist so I count myself lucky in that respect.
I have more shots to follow of different subjects and would appreciate your comments.
