Since the main vertical element is the subject and SO prominent, I'd have made it more plumb and let the horizon tilt a little (it's somewhat hidden by the shadows and the perspective of the bank anyway).

I really like all of the lights in the picture. not just the lights on the monument but all the ones surrounding it. nice work.

This is a very good shot. The trees and stuff on shore is a little soft, but it isn't majorly distracting from the shot. The monument is a little bright but I can understand that as 1.) it was meant to be. or 2.) it was necessary to get the rest of the exposure right. Either way, its a great pic - Inspzil

The monument appears a little crooked.

The monument should be more towards the left instead of right near the edge on the right.

I love the tone and the reflection. Does that ever stand out at night. Are those spot lights shining up in the air, 3 toward it and 2 on the left straight up? To me those add to the whole idea of pointing out justwhat it is. This should be right at the top. Great job and well done. I can see this hanging on a wall.

Is the picture tilted in the frame on purpose?

That's different take on a cliche. Goo job. Beautiful reflection.

great shot...love the sepia tone!

this is a great night shot. I think it would look a little better if you cropped out the border. You can tell that the photo was rotated about 1 degree CCW, if you want a border crop it out and add one back that is all level. For the photo I give you a 7

Nice shot, but you need to rotate this and crop before framing to straighten the monument.

Awesome reflections. The lighting is excellent and so to is the composition. Well captured and GL.
