Good color, I like the buildings.

I would have cropped out the bottom tree and boat, its distracting to your overall composition.

Looks like a beautiful town. Unfortunately the haze isn't allowing the nice colors to come through. There's some color on the right of the image but as you move left towards the haze it gets washed out. Also, the tree at the bottom of the image is distracting. There's a reddish colored string, scratch...something...through the entrie image. It starts at the top at the 2/3 mark and goes down. I'm not really sure what caused that.

I think the location and angle of this shot are great. It's a beautiful area and the greens on land and blues of the water would make for a gorgeous image. Brighten it up a little and lose the tree and you've have an excellent image!

Nice job.

Good composition although a little too hazy. The boats bring in more interest so that it isn't just a plain urban landscape pic. I think in this challenge an extra element of interest is necessary.

The tree at the bottom is a bit distracting, nice idea for this challenge.

Nice contrast of background fog and foreground clarity. The boats add to the effect, but the tree, especially in dead-center position, detracts - at least for me.
