I like the details and the coloring technique you used, but the perspective is a bit less...the buildings look like they're falling backwards -- most likely because the reference photo you used had the same defect.

Very, very, very beautiful ... I always admire when I see watercolor drawings. I always wanted to learn this technique, but I tried and tried and it came out a total mess, this technique is the hardest for me

A very nice and gutsy approach to do a w/c with this
type of light. Colors handled judiciously ( i really love when
they don't scream at me) and with an amount of detail that
would drive me nuts. Nice going!
