beautiful shot, the lights on the bridge are a little distracting, not too sure what you could do about that though

Nice strong diagonal composition, good balance to the shot. A wee bit of fringing along the bridge, both above and below, but doesn't detract significantly. I'm not sure how you get rid of that other than very careful cloning.

Pretty sunset. My favorite part is the reflection of the pier in the water.
