    Welcome Khaled.

    Beautiful shot - the sky, city line, reflections on the water all look great. The foreground boat adds a nice touch to it.

    However the slow shutter has blurred the boats in the middle which spoils it a bit for me. Others more experienced may be able to say how this can be avoided or corrected.

    Thanks for sharing, it is an astounding image all the same.

    Assuming this was shot on a tripod, I suspect the aperture of F5.3 simply reduced the depth of focus. Although any subject movement also causes a problem.

    I would have increased the Iso to around 400 and used an aperture of, say for example, F11.

    However, this might be a good case for taking two shots with different focus points then merging them together; subject to a lack of subject movement and having suitable software.
