This picture literally brought tears to my eyes. I am from Texas originally, and I lived in Austin for quite a while. I really miss it and your picture brought back a flood of great memories. Thank you.

Very nice, except for the extremely distracting blown highlight on the top of the right building. You should have underexposed and then lightened up...

Nice compositions and tones. I always like cityscapes with water. Nice clarity and colors.

Wonderful photograph!! Excellent focus and composition. I not only enjoy looking at the crisp details of the buildings, but the beautiful reflections on the water continue to draw my eyes to it. 10 Bravo!!
