This is a very nice night shot. Your exposure seems great, and the reflection looks good as well. My only thoughts are that to me, it looks tilted(it may just be the angle you took it from), and I would crop a little from the left, in order to remove the edge of the tunnel which is only partly visible, and acts as a slight distraction for me. Nice work.

There is a slight tilt and it would be nice to correct it because this shot is very worth it...
Composition is perfect, framing is good (could have a little crop on the left), play of colours and light is very attractive!

Amazing night reflection shot...Perfect metering and composition...Simply great!

A very effective picture that captures the atmosphere. I am not convinced about cropping on the left; I think that the road sign is important to the composition.

I like the reflections in the river. I too think it would be better cropped from the left and correct the slight tilt.

A nice composition... makes one wonder, how the same picture would have looked in the sunset afterglow.

It's exellent! I am initially from St Petersburg and I know very well this bridge, it looks wonderful in your picture

The architecture has lots of rounds and curves, which are pleasing. Top it all off, with your capture of the gleaming metal, I get the feeling it would be a great setting for a movie. Cathy

I missed this one till now, glad I found it as it certainly stands out. Very impressive night shot, I have just two comments: Reflection is very nice but it would have helped the balance of the composition if you included alittle more of the sky. I believe there is a slight tilt.

Unbelivable ! Surely a masterpiece of night shots.

Good shot! I like colors of different lights sources that play on the walls of the bridge.
I'm in accord with Darren: it's better to cut the left side, so also the "No access" signal will be removed as it is highlighted on the dark background!
Apart this, really good!
