Good timing, and quite nice.

The mod is just a little brighter.

I like the composition, but personally I find the colour rather unattractive. It does nothing to enhance the image ( turquoise T-shirt notwithstanding ) and is actually monochrome, so maybe a b&w conversion might be worth a try?
I'll suggest a mod.

Need more EXIF to comment fully. I quite like this - my kind of candid with couple well placed. I actually find the block of concrete on the bottom of the nearest support pillar quite eye catching.

An interesting place, Donald, with lots of barnacles, good reflections and strong vertical lines.

Although I agree that the couple are well placed, I have done a modification which places them on a thirds intersection. It reqired a crop, and removing a lot of the foreground, but it also has the effect of letting the two main uprights form a sort of frame, and a balanced composition. Also, I feel the image is enhanced and a little less complicated with the cropping of the horizontal bits at the very top.
I brightened the image, sharpened and (unlike Alan) felt that a bit more saturation brought out some rather nice colours.

Well done for waiting for the right opportunity. The scene is definitely enhanced by the couple's entrance.

To my eye, there's a slight tilt - and there's a lot going on in the frame. I may try a mod later - I think a mono conversion's a good idea.
