Nice clean shot! I get the feeling that one could should an interesting night shot, with the lights of the buildings reflecting in the river....?

I live in Indianapolis, and this is a great location.  Yes, this is a good spot for a night shot with reflections.  You can also shoot the moon rising over the city here.  And, it's a great location for fourth of July fireworks as well.

Re: Indy downtown.

Very nice scene and I like the way you have given character to the sky by including the clouds.

But the sky is too light and flat looking for me.

Applying a Neutral Density Graduated Filter layer and some dodge and burn would make the sky and overall scene pop a lot more for me.

If we can post edited versions of your image I can show you what I mean.

Just my $0.02 and hopefully some food for thought.

Thank you for sharing

thanks, David, i tried what you suggested but then i noticed that the pristine sky looked cluttered, and that is because that's how i remember the sky on that day, so i rather leave it the way it is

P.S. i usually use GND and CPL filters when the sun is in the front intensely to lessen the extra exposure, but in this case, the sun is slightly behind me and no harm done, IMO.
