    I used Aperture for some adjustments and dodge and burn, think it looks okay?
    Cheers

    I like. Mostly at first. Then I kept looking and found a few issues that I have. I like how you framed the action using the bridge. Very nice composition. There is a bit of negative space in the bottom right corner, but I can't see how you can really get away from that one while maintaining the optimal composition. All that I don't really like is that burnout spot on the side of the water. I find it as a contrast distraction. The buildings above the other bridge look a little soft too. Otherwise, very good. Well done!

    Thanks for your kind words:) What could i do to prevent that burnout? Its from a reflection of bright building lights beyond the bridge I think. More opinions welcomed!

    Hi, I've tweaked the dodging and burning a bit and boosted some of the colours. I think it adds a bit more punch. opnions?
