    A really fine picture! I love how there's still some blue in the sky and how that contrasts with the "golden" lights.

    Some minor suggestions / ideas:
    - You could try to do a little perspective correction. Especially the buildings in the middle right might benefit if they wouldn't look so slanted to the left. (I don't know if it's worth the effort though... of course you would loose some image content on the borders due to the necessary cropping after perspective correction)
    - I can see some bright spots (lens flare?) in the sky left and right of the central building). Maybe you want to retouch those

    You did a great job on this Carsten...the tonal range seems to be very broad.
