Footbridge over the Olza river
Lens: Takumar-A 28 Camera: K-1 Mark II Photo Location: Cieszyn Poland ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 6s Aperture: F6.3 

I used HDR. The lines of lights caught my attention.

I like the PP you did. Monochrome helps to emphasis the shape of the bridge.

Composition wise I would have liked to see a little more foreground, so that the connection point of the arch with the bridge is right in the corner.

Like how the curves, shapes, and lights interact in your composition. Dig your decision to process in b/w. Cool image.

That's really nice. Everything works well. Sure like the star burst!

I like the composition and the HDR did the sky well, but I think the starbursts are a bit excessive.

(I'm assuming you used a tripod) I would have taken one photograph at the current aperture setting and another stopped up so that I could mask our some of the burts. Specifically the one on the far right railing, the one farthest away shining through the left railing, and the one on top of the house.

Such and edit would have been obvious, but I think it would distract from the geometry of the bridge a lot less. This is pretty subjective though.

loved the atmosphere created through composition and B&W, but I think the starbursts are unnecessary

A good b/w image. Could perhaps use some more contrast but only my opinion.

I would level the image, which is tilted a little.

Thanks for comments. indeed the lamps did shine quite strongly. Good advice to reduce flares. I had a problem with setting the level, the bridge is not level .

I would use the buildings for reference.
