I really like it that early morning orangey tone, and love that reflection. Merry Xmas Chen.

This is very well done.

Perfect reflection on very still water, and the glow from the mist adds another dimension to it.

Very little to comment on; the lens, at 18mm, does have a little barrel distortion, and the verticals at the sides are leaning outwards just a little, so that could be corrected, miniscule straightening to the centre vertical, all done in the mod. I increased colour vibrancy also.

Otherwise great job.

This is a great composition and a rich colour treat. Senior wisdom above has advised you so I only suggest one possible thought.
I would place the blue arc right side against the frame. The symmetry is in the subject so no need to be centered. This would give a little more to the lead in on the lower left. Not knowing what lays outside the left frame, this may not be possible. TG

This is excellent. The one change that I would want to make is to get rid of the barrel distortion - I have no objection normally to it, it's what a wide angle lens does... It's simply seeing differently to the human eye. But it tilts reflections, that's particularly noticeable at the left end of the bridge and the far right of the picture - and that looks awkward. Willie has already dealt with that aspect in his modification.

There's something familiar in this - so many modern bridges have coloured lighting now, and they tend to be in industrial urban locations where dusk and dawn produce that brown sky. I think it's street lighting reflected back from low cloud and passing through air pollution. The colour combination is quite extraordinary.

My only real thought was similar to Tony's: you need the land one side to form an anchor for the whole picture, but only on one side: a crop on the right is possible (but not necessary!)

Willie's mod does everything else with an already-excellent shot.

A good image. It is difficult, at this size, to gauge how sharp a shot is. I think, when a section is enlarged, I detract a little softness, but not much. There mat be a traffic vibration effect. You do use a remote release or delayed action to release the shutter?

Using the shutter button ditprectly instills a little vibration.

Symmetry at his best!
