Just great!
The long exposure creates a really cool effect by the textures of the reflections on the water.

Another excellent long exposure Ian. We re-know well the famous tower of Berlin on the right and the reflections on the motionless water are very beautiful

Something that a lot of folks miss here is the sensitive square crop which holds the elements together more firmly.

To my mind such advertisement only disfigures historical views of old towns. I observe the similar in Moscow...
Maybe in that consists the sence of this image?

@Oleg: Thanks Oleg. I enjoy exploring contrasts in my photography....in this one it's old and new; commerce, religion and communism....you get the idea I'm sure.
