I personally would have gone with a longer expoure time for this shot..

I like it the way it is except the water looks likes it's been over-sharpened. Sometimes that's true and sometimes it's the result of these small, low res images. If it's not over-sharpened, a print of this on the right paper might look pretty cool.

Thanks all. It is sharpened and then some.
I must say that this is a vast improvement over the Lincoln Statue . I think it's great--it may have been a little oversharpened, but that's just being technical. Very dramatic and love it. I respectfully disagree with Lesifer and Cameragal. If this was a tranquil scene of say, a waterfall, I would indeed recommend a slower shutter speed. But since this fits under a more dramatic/urban type of photo, the water being sharp is excellent. Also, I believe that the exposure is good. Again, great photo.
I sat here for a moment having a hard time deciding if this was ridiculous or fantastic.
...I decided those are very close to the same thing.
I appreciate your willingness to be ridiculous in pursuit of fantastic, Mike. I love how centered the cement column is.
