The development, which was started in spring 2006, has seen the creation of a vibrant public area combining expanded water space with a reshaped canal basin to enable better boat access, public plaza, student accommodation, improved boater facilities and bar/restaurant units.
The buildings consist of quite bright colours as you can see in the reflection and is known locally as Ballamory as the colours are similar to those used in the childrens TV programme of that name.

The reflection is very eye catching and beautiful but, in my opinion, there are too many things in this picture that distract the attention.
I would crop it just where the water ends, removing all the upper part that is rather confused.
Then maybe you could have waited few seconds more, allowing the man to get closer to the camera.

"What's the story of Ballamory - wouldn't ye like to know?" Surely you're not a fan of that T.V. show are you?
So many people here nowadays seem to be posting some lovely colourful water reflections like this that I really must try to seek out some suitable photographic venues to visit!
This one is glorious: we can't see the actual buildings themselves, but who cares, because we can see them beautifully in those lovely reflections. Not only that, but I can see the colours reflected magnificently on the wet wooden jetty to the right as well. The lovely green narrowboat and the pedestrian add interest and scale to the image. Perfect exposure, lovely vibrant colours and excellent sharpness.

it was here on TE where I learnt to love reflections. These are extremely beautiful and moody. Very good management of the light and lovely colors. This image is a pleasure for the eyes. My compliments!

You posted the same theme as I did this morning.
Nice colored reflections on the still water, and a human presence to give life.
But your shot is tilted, and the lighted area at left is too eye catching. The foreground with the quay is not so attractive. See my proposition in WS to try toenhance it .

I like the bright colours in the reflections on the water and the lovely shimmery silver light.
Have a lovely weekend.
