    Have you got a real name we can use (if that's not it)? Makes things much friendlier.

    I like the composition on this. You've got a good angle with the bank of the river taking us nicely across and back into, the image. The bridge provides a nice reflection to 'lift' that part of the frame. You have the boat very well placed. So,in my view, a well constructed image.

    Having been there - I think it is very true to life (on a good day weather wise)

    I also like your vantage point, the old station building nestled in amongst the new high rises, which work very well with the river for me.

    Hi Dante,

    Melbourne is my home town and this is a nice shot. I do like the perspective and the light is lovely.

    The only comment I would make is that you could possibly have moved the camera to the right a little to get the full arch of the bridge; it feels a bit cut off to me. There is room on the left to move as there isn’t anything of special interest that would be lost. Having said that I am not sure what was further to the right. It might be messy and you have excluded it for a reason.
