For me there is a lot going on here. I want to have something specific that draws me to it and I don't find it. The fountains are lost behind the front buildings. The tall structure in the back left is cut off at the top. I would simplify this scene somehow, focus on one thing in particular, separate it out from the rest of the elements in the image.

 Hi Walter, thank you for the critique. I agree there is a ot happening here that is the nature of downtown Dubai! I composed this image a number of ways but my goal was to capture the liveliness and color of the scene. For me this image guides my eye down the lake on the left, past the buldings to the fountain and the Burj Khalifa tower behind. Giving the height of the Burj it is difficult to include its entire height as well as the detail down below in one frame!  This is one perspective of a few captures. Your comments are appreciated Smile
