Title probably hurt me. The backlit subject of the shot was the plume of water vapor. Title called attention to the towers, which were sillhouettes. Perhaps a title like "Powerful Vapor" would have fared better.

Quite nice. A different position would have helped to separate the towers.

Hmmmm...I work near some of those and have a lot of these shots. I like the colors. I would rotate it slightly counter-clockwise.
