Many thanks to everybody for their kind and helpful comments. It was surprising and exciting to see the score climbing from about 6.3 to nearly 7. Yes, there were both ups and downs on the way too.
The morning itself was actually quite cold, both literally and colour temperature wise. The latter could be adjusted during raw conversion and then Photographic warm-up filter in CS2. Added some contrast too. And that was it.
Thanks again.

I love the contrasting shapes -- the round arches (and their reflections) vs the building. Great shot!

Love the monotone, painterly effect.

The somber mood of a foggy time is nicely enhanced by the yellowish color. Having the bridge reflection contribute a set of circles adds an interesting and unexpected bit of geometry. Nice composition.

I love the effect of the mist
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/28/2007 04:07:20 PM
This seems to be a good attempt, but all mist with no clarity or contrast detracts from the quality.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/28/2007 01:27:12 PM
The colour toning is a little strong, in my opinion, but I like the scene, muted by the mist, very much.

There is a lot of noise in this photo which have been intentional, but I don't like the sky. However, the perspective is very nice.

The fog does make this look timeless; nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/26/2007 09:07:44 PM
This is great! I love the drama that the fog and misty lighting gives this. One of my favorites! I hope to see this one again on the front page :)
