Thanks, everyone, for your comments.
Neil, I did darken the poles a bit initially, but decided against that as I liked it better when the image sort of disappeared to the right. Although I used to frequent this spot a lot in the past, this was the first time since the construction of the new bridge due to all the construction.
mac_paolo, Although I did crop the image, it was not as you think. I actually cropped some off the bottom as a log somehow crept into the picture. As I was taking photos, a river craft (moving the aforementioned logs) crept into the left side foreground and I couldn't move the camera to the left without part of it sitting out of focus in the image so had to keep the camera more to the right.
