hey guys i was recently on holiday in queensland, australia, about 10 hrs north of my home town, and wanted to share a photo i took, i think it turned out pretty nice. i had no tripod so i had to balance the camera on the hand rail. i have put up the settings used feel free to tell me if i could have set up better.

It's a nice shot but it looks like the horizon is tilted a couple of degrees counterclockwise. Straightening it will be an easy and worthwhile edit.

yep, nice shot for sure... when straightening you'll have to keep parallel lines in mind, i think you'll run into issues on the left-hand side... totally fixable, just be aware...

imo, the shot would be more interesting should the large building be placed to an approximate third of the image; however, it's not readily doable now that all's said and done (unless you want to crop out a portion of it).
