Port Tangier-Med is touted as the newest, largest and busiest port in Africa on MARCOPOLIS. It is located 40 km. east of the city of Tangier. Construction began in 2005 and the first phase of the Port opened in 2007. The construction for the second phase began in 2009.
The weather was terrible when we were there. It was raining heavily. We got out of the car, took a few pictures and got back in. This is a panoramic view of Tanger-Med, stitched together from three photos.

You're capturing well this port by a good composition, so it's interesting and impressive to see the cargo ships which are at anchor alongside the pier and a lot of container loads on port/ship. The whole is harmonized well by a good color combinatio. And, the low mountain of backdrop draws out a good atmosphere in this image.
Anyway, I tried a workshop since it considered that it was better to have improved in my opinion. However, this is my personal taste, and I hope you don't mind.

What an unusual, but interesting photo. There is linear perspective, as well as implied-line perspective. There are repeated images, brilliant colors surrounded by subdued colors, making the center of interest stand out clearly. Very well done indeed.

Port action from a very effective POV, Murat.
Modern crane loading containers on a big vessels, an attractive sight.
Low light had grand influence here, nevertheless, I like such sceneries.
