Personally I like the left 60% or so of the image, but I think the row of boats and cars on the right leads the eye straight to the back of the frame and out.

I have a similar problem… I tend to forget the left part of the frame and only see the waterway, the sky and the right side of the image.

That's always the difficulty with a Panorama camera, getting both sides of the image to work together.

Here is another attempt with the Xpan in Amsterdam last week.

Strange; again, I tend to like the way the first shot has been framed. Not at all do I find it leads 'out of the shot' but, rather, it suggests depth and a sense of perspective. Always best to go with your first instinct, I think, and the shot is perfectly good and atmospheric. But then, if there were not dissentient opinion, what would there be to say about anything?

Would have liked to have seen this on Velvia...

Thank you Rob,
I would have liked to use Velvia as well but without a tripod (just a quick business trip) and usually overcast conditions I only brought the Sensia 400 with me.
The 30mm lens is f5.6 and when you add the center filter it is effectively an f11 lens wide open hence the need for faster film.
As always, I appreciate your comments.

Too true!  As the saying goes, if two people agree on everything, one of them is unnecessary.

Personally I agree with Mike;
perhaps a step or two to the right would have prevented the row of boats from being too vertical and linear?
either way, it is far better than what I would have come up with!  :D
