    Very story feeling.  I can feel the cold and the rain looking this.  Good shot

    Very misty view sets a good feeling for the conditions.  Well composed to give us lots to look at.

    Suggestions:

    It's dark.  Although it suits the mood somewhat, I think lifting it a little and adding a tiny bit of contrast would give it a little more punch without losing the message.

    Response:

    I've taken your suggestion and lightened the image a bit and added detail to the water to give the foreground some distinction.  I think it's an improvement.  Thanks for your feedback!

         There is a lot of interesting detail to be found in this photo, and the bridge provides a good line for leading us through the water.

    Suggestions:

    Because there is really no "foreground", everything has the misty quality.  If you lightened a little, and perhaps increased the contrast, you might emphasize a little ore of the wonderful reflections, water texture, etc. without losing the misty feeling in the background.

    Response:

    Life is always a trade-off...  While I like the misty/dark look I take your point about the water in the foreground missing detail.  So I lightened the overall image a bit and added a gradualted filter over the foreground water and brought out the detail.  Overall, I think it's an improvement.  Thanks for your advice.

    Very moody.

    Suggestions:

    The image is very dark, and I don't see any lights in the scene. It could benefit from some brightness perhaps on the water.

    A splendidly gloomy interpretation of the theme.  One can just feel that weather.

    Suggestions:

    Assuming you are taking this the Putallo Bridge.  If you could have adjusted your position slightly so that the left upright of the Skytrain bridge didn't have the clutter behind it, the image would have cleaner lines that would enhance the quiet and stillness of this composition.

    Wish to see some clouds instead of a mist for fitting the theme
