15 second exposure taken under the north side of Auckland's harbour bridge

Feels like a strange composition, not sure what you intended the subject to be. Perhaps move to the right and use the bridge to frame the city. Or wait til there is a subject under the bridge like a kayaker or something and cut out the city from the frame.

Thanks for your comments Adrian.I did take a lot of shots of just the bridge, some good ones in b/w,but the sun reflection came out of nowhere and I liked it.And after a 15 sec exp I think a kayaker would be a blur or not recognisable if paddling quickly

I just used the kayaker as an example of how to use the bridge for framing, I didn't mean as a long exposure.

I would focus more on the bridge side and crop out the city part. It would be a great architectural-geometrical long exposure. I also do like a lot when such images are b&w. You were not front-facing the bridge legs? you may need some perspective correction there. Gave a 4*
