I don't very often disagree with Mike, but this time I do. I don't see a problem with the bend in the river. I'd call this a first class street shot, and yes, you can make a street shot across a river. To me, what makes it really work is the bright area on the left balanced by the bright lights of the city on the right. Also, the small diagonal made by the harbor lights just below the city lights offsets the slight diagonal of the reflection of the street light. The person under the street light tops everything off. Without the human figure it would be a lot less. My only beef is with the unidentified blob protruding into the left edge of the picture, about half way up. I think I'd clone that out. I wouldn't crop, because the run of the fence is important.
Hey, if two people agree on everything, one of them is unnecessary!
