An image of two parts, bright and shadow. The tonal range has beaten you and, dare I say it, careful HDR may have helped. However, you may be able to rescue some detail from the shadows with the dodge tool and a large brush sellected.

Interesting picture. There are details hiding in the shadows. I've done a very basic mod. Someone will hopefully do a good mod and improvement more.

Welcome to EPZ Souvanik and the Critique gallery in particular.

Nice mod Nick considering the start point, the bit of perspective correction makes a difference too. Overall though I don't think this looks its best in letterbox format it really could do with more of the river beneath the bridge being within the frame to give more effect to the height and more balance to the composition.

The sides of the towers are at the extreme edge of the frame and the bases are right at the bottom, so more space all round I feel sure would make for a pleasing difference.

EXIF wise because most of the picture is in shadow, you would need positive exposure compensation - not negative as you have applied here. However, having said that this was perhaps a "Bridge too far" considering the latitude of the lighting experienced. The mod does show what can be recovered anyway.

Maybe have another go when you have better lighting available to you.
