      Beautiful - is this HDR ?

      NIce shot of all the structural elements ...
      Maybe a tad clearer still, lighter? Just a minor thought ... :)

      Thanks very much :)

      Thank you - this is indeed HDR, from 3 exposures.

      Thanks for your comment, and especially for your critique - appreciated. I put the brightness on this up and down for ages before settling on one I was happy with. At work it's too dark for my monitor, but at home it's just right for my liking. I think the problem may be that I process at night in a dark room so things appear brighter then than they may actually be. Thanks for your suggestion :)

      Interesting to read the background ... congrats on the winning award!
      You're much more into processing than I am as I just use an old Corel program 10 years old and recently since buying a Canon 60D the processing from RAW that came with it, but a rule I tend to stick by is getting detail in the darkest parts of a shot as a basic point, then working around that. Your bridge shot has such wonderful detail of the structural engineering parts of the bridge and maybe they're lost a bit in the darkness. Reducing level equaliser at the dark end, or squeezing up the lower end of tone curve might bring out this detail ... I'd love to see it! Just an amateur's suggestion!

      This is a neat shot. And the ominous sky provides a counterpoint to all the lights.
