My first reaction was that it is a bit tightly framed/cropped. If it is a crop you might want to show us the full photo.

Well, to be brutaly honest, I wouldn't have taken this shot dead on. If you're trying to get symmetry, this shot fails at that because you've got the trees etc on the left. I also feel the the shot is a little too tight on the top edge of the frame. Even though you could say that it is 'the norm', I would have taken the shot from one end of the bridge at an angle of say 9 oclock, with the bridge leading off. But at the end of the day, the shot is well exposed, and just the composition needs a little work.

It appears that it might work better as a portrait-orientated image. Currently there's a great unbalance between the width and the height. Subject matter and colours are great though. I don't think you need to reshoot a different perspective, but you might have benefitted with a different crop/framing.

NB - if you're into minutiae with IQ, then there is a noticeable falloff in sharpness to the left of the frame. It doesn't really matter.

From what you wrote I understand it is indeed a crop. Now I can also understand that you may not want to keep (all) your RAW files although DVD-Rs and hard-disk space are pretty cheap these days. But I would never throw away a RAW file without also saving a JPG of the full photo if I decided to make a cropped version.

And if it's a photo that I would find good enough to put some work in and post on a forum I would personally probably keep the RAW file too (if my camera could shoot in RAW of course which it cannot). If an average RAW file would be 15 MB you can save 300 on a single DVD-R. If you only keep the 'keepers' I can't imagine that becoming a logistical problem.
