Apollo bridge, Bratislava

Photo Information
This is one of three pictures I took the other night under the Apollo bridge in Bratislava. I guess I like this one the most, although I can't quite decide. I have a feeling that it would be better if the pillar in the front of the picture (on the left side) was visible in its entirety. I might go back there someday and take one more shot. Here is a link to the other 2 pictures:
What do you say? Which one do you like the most?

They all have their merits, I think your perspective in this shot is the best, it is a fine image

Thank you for your comments! Bob, in the picture that you like, I like the fact that you can see the whole bridge. It was shot with a wide-angle Sigma 10-20 mm. The one posted here on the forum was shot with a 21mm Limited, therefore I couldn't zoom out anymore. But I'll go back there and see if I can move the tripod further back. And I agree with Giulio, I also enjoy them best when I view them on full screen Thank you.

This shot is the best of the bunch, the perspective gives the proper sense of scale and makes you look at the bridge from left to right. Technically, the shot looks to have just the right exposure, well done

For me this cries out "HDR". Try it - you might be even more pleased with the result! I can't figure out why the river doesn't look level but the bridge does! Too many angles for my poor little brain! Whatever, it's a beauty!

Thanks again for the comments! Paul, I was also thinking about giving it another go and this time trying HDR. Not that there are too many blown highlights, but there are some, so I might try and see what HDR would look like. And as for the angles... I don't really know, I didn't even notice that, to be honest (that's what I call 'author's blindness'). Download the picture and rotate it for yourself, see if you can find the right balance between the river and the bridge.
