Nice light on the bridge and buildings...maybe a crop to a 3:1 pano would add more focus. But then again I am obsessed with panos!

You caught this bridge at the perfect moment. The sun position makes the color contrast between the warm glow and the cool sky and water quite vivid. The deepening shadows make great contrast, but not so much that you lose important detail. Excellent job.
