I really like it.  I lived at Kangaroo Point for a few years, basically on the approach to bridge - that was mid 90's, so this evokes some good memories.

A couple of the buildings are bent - is this a stitch or a crop of a wide lens?

The colours, the exposure and the setting I really like.

Actually it is a stitch.
In fact an HDR image as well.
30 images shot with a 50mm f1.4.

I have a print that is 50 inches long - interestingly the master that I printed off does not seem to have the same issues.
I had a power failure and lost the initial PSD with all the perspective corrections but still have a JPEG with those corrections.

Nice colors and a non-obvious use of HDR on the plus side.

I find the cut-off of the tallest building mildly annoying, however, as well as the presence of the phantom boat. Actually, I would crop it out, together with the entire lower portion, which would then concentrate the attention to what matters: city skyline and the bridge.

I agree about the building, but I rather like the boat - brings a sense of movement to an otherwise static scene.  To each his (or her) own!
