#3. "RE: The Mariott Hotel on Harbour Island Fl."

Nice one! But I do have 3 small issues that, if possible to correct, would improve the overall results.

1). The angle of both the building and the light post throw off my balance. I get an uneasy feeling when looking at this. The light post, so close to the edge of the image, is quite obvious and more a distraction than a "real problem". The building, however, has the feeling like it's leaning back away from me - like it's avoiding me. That creates a very uneasy feeling in me at least. Off balance.

2). Regarding the light post again: The globes appear underexposed and dull looking. I'd try to pop those out a bit with some dodging: not so much to make them glow, but at least appear whiter.

3). Similarly to the light post, the building seems to be dulled by some underexposure. It appears to be in direct sunlight, however, there is no POP in the colors.

Now that I have analyzed this more, I'd combine #2 and #2 together and say the entire image could use just a little more brightness. I see the water and sky now are subdued as well as the globes and the building. I wonder if you could bump up the brightness a bit without adverse reactions happening elsewhere. I appears that you have some latitude in exposure - so it couldn't hurt trying.

Otherwise - I do like the general composition (less the leaning) and HDR technique. Well done.
