Certainly an iconic structure Paul and your shot provides a great view.
The lighting has been a bit of a challenge for you though. There is quite strong light coming from the sky area and the camera has struggled to cope and much of the foliage in the foreground area is a little on the dark side.
It's quite easy to correct in Photoshop - see my mod. I used a two stage process by first lifting the shadow areas using a levels adjustment, which I applied using a layer mask. The histogram tells me that the sky area is not blown out but it looks a bit bright to my eye and lacking in contrast. I used the burn tool to add more contrast. I also used the burn tool to try to give more definition to the bridge area which is tending to merge into the clouds behind at some points.
If you want to get a better exposure in camera you could always take two shots - exposing one for the sky and the other for the foreground and then merge them in Photoshop.
Hope this helps
