    Hi Ghanim,

    EXIF: Nikon D7000, 28mm, 1/250s, f/13 at iso 100

    Looking at the picture - and confirmed by the histogram, the shot was under exposed and hasn't been brought up sufficiently in PP.

    Being super critical, it isn't quite level, if you draw a line from the nearest corner of the castellated tower down to its reflection, it isn't quite vertical, it needs a slight clockwise rotation, or it may be more complex and also need a slight perspective correction, but there's little in shot to confirm this.

    However, I like the composition, it is sharp and I like the mono conversion.

    Cheers,

    Hi Dave: I would like to appreciate your comments, actually they were right. There is an inclination of 1.3 degree. The photo is little bit underexposed but I can say that this my style. You are the first one who studied and analyzed a photo this deep.
    Thank you very much.

    Hi. I find the composition very good. IMO the contrast is a bit too high and the sky looks over dramatic drawing too much intension.

    I too like the composition. Interesting shot with a perfect reflection. I would bring up the exposure by 1 stop and possibly lighten the upper portion of the sky. It looks a bit to ominous for this shot (unless that was you intention)
