i love this, its wasted in the critique section as it has worked perfectly, it as really vibrant colours, the use of wide angle giving curvature to the horizon adds a nice touch and the exposure time is spot on. i have wanted to get a shot like this for ages and i really envy you. well done.
the only point i would make is to put the apex of the curve more central.

This has a really graphic, almost surreal, feel to it. The quality of light is excellent and the curved horizon gives a feeling of great distances.

This isn't really a critique, as I like the shot, but one idea to make something different is to use the perspective tool to correct the curvature.

it looks very abstract from the thumbnail in the gallery, and has lovely detail. I don't see why it's in the critique gallery - this is a very individual and original shot. Lovely use of the wide angle lens. The curvature makes it seem as if it's the edge of the earth! maybe straighten it slightly, because the dark clouds makes it look like its tilted towards the right. Amazing picture though!

The light is so well balance with great colors on this shot. I agree with coza the curvature seem as if it's he edge of the earth. so i will keep it. Instead of straighten it i will curve the left side a bit more so it is center!!!

I can't think of anything you could do to make it better, it's spot on. Vibrant indeed !

Dear All,
Thanks heaps for all of your comments and feedbacks. Now I realized that I need to tilt the horizon a bit to the right. I up loaded this photograph into regular gallery.

Best regards,

It just works! Maybe rotate a degree or two to the left to get the curve right?

It's been said already - put it in the regular gallery now! :o)

What a shame that the Rialto observation deck is now closed and that the Eureka Tower's balcony faces the wrong direction.
