Welcome to LuLa Jim.

Nice shot: the unusual perspective makes for an interesting image.

Looks like a rather skillfully done HDR. It also has a certain zoomorphic quality (meaning it looks like a dinosaur ;-))

Welcome. It's good, although I'm not entirely convinced that the reflection towards the lower part of the frame is sufficiently clear to justify the amount of space it takes. To put it another way, I'd crop off some of the bottom.

Great composition and light. I like the reflection. The HDR is a little strong for my taste.

Interesting shot...all the shadow areas are open/have clear detail in them so i guess its a HDR image, its just starting to get that HDR glow in the bridge itself, but other than that i think its very nice.
I just wonder if a curve to reduce to the light would allow the image to better portray sunrise, it would probably add to the atmosphere as well?

You might well crop a little bit off the bottom, but if you do, there is a poster here named Russ (handle is RSL) who will throw a tantrum.  ;)

Eric, Eric - he'll encounter Russ soon enough. No need to warn him!

I can see what you mean Jeremy; I imagine the extra space on the bottom is mean to add a feeling of height to the bridge.  If it was going to be cropped I'd remove some from the right and clone out that little boat or whatever it is on the right side. 

Uh oh, here comes Russ... Duck!

I'm not Russ.  But I love the image!!  I like the level of HDR, in contrast to some of the others here I think it is noticeable but not really over the top!  I also like the relatively empty space at the bottom - just a perfect shot in my books!
