Well....first of all it looks a bit too dark. Secondly, the sepia tone seems to be taking over. Areas that should be black (such as the shadows under the bridge) are actually brownish. Perhaps the white-balance is off? I'm not sure. It could probably be fixed in photoshop... But other than that, this looks like a really beautiful image! I like the fact that you used the sepia tone (even if it didn't turn out :)) The composition and the reflections are really beautiful! Keep up the good work!:)

I wonder if you suffered from "voter monitor calibration syndrome" It seems a bit dark on my monitor. Darkish images appear too dark on a lot of other monitors and suffer for it. When id doubt, enter a brighter shot or be prepared for a lower score.

You have a dramatic leading ling here, the surface where the bridge and reflection meet, and the decreasing size of the ovals they make. But you line leads the viewer to nothing. Are those birds on the opposite shore? I can't make it out. So, in a speed vote, if your leading line leads the viewer to nothing, his sye continues on out of the frame and his finger says "Next" without giving the rest of the photo the attention it might deserve.

I think this could have come off more dramatic (and that is what scores well here) with a better lighting on the bridge itself. There was decent contrast in the image - especially on the reflection, but the majority of the image seemed a little flat. In addition, the cropping was a little tight - I think more sky in the image may have helped as well.
