I love the juxtopostion of the brilliant open sky with the dark closed cages and posts. Your title is perfect as your image.

There's much to love here, but the "clumping" of the central posts is bothering me, and I long for a tad more separation where the nets are.

Perhaps I have my monitor set to dark because I don't want anyone complaining about my pics, but I think this could have been a stellar shot if there was some more light on the water. Oh and if possible I would have liked to see the full reflections of the longer posts and a bit less sky

Looks like skyscrapers in the water, cool effect on the mind.
The radiation in the sky is nice as well.

The sky is beautiful and silhouettes the buildings perfectly. The composition doesn't work for me somehow. The bottom of the photo seems to cluttered. I think it works better cropped above the nets and sun's relection with just enough water showing to let the viewer know it's there.

So far...my favorite. Great shot, a 10.
