I'm going to have to disagree with you Alan. I think the composition here is very clever and Tony has brought to bear a thoughful eye.

To me, I see the city buildings 'mirrored' in the smaller standing stones and I would hazard a guess that that is what Tony had in mind when he took it (maybe I'm just being artsy-fartsy luvvies) emoticon .

In hindsight, I think it could stand the loss of the pole sticking out of the water on the left hand side.



The foreground, middle and background just don't gel in my opinion. The reflection is what I would have connected with if I was at this location, just to see what I could get out of it. What is interesting is that the light on the architecture is looking good with some nice luminance reflecting back, however this scene has been shot by so many photographers it's hard to find a new angle, less would be more for my tastes.
