Keeping going on my bridge theme here is Washington Bridge in Milford CT. It is also my first crack at HDR. All comments welcome.

Good. It doesn't look like an overcooked HDR. Think about cropping it just to the right of the rightmost bridge tender's hut, before the arch. The arch that appears there now just slides off the edge of the frame and carries the eye with it. The utility poles and wires on the left are ugly. However, I can see the value of keeping the white vessel in the image. So no cropping there.

Well done on the HDR - not overdone, which is nice.

Don't care for the subject though.

I agree. The overall "interestingness" of the image is lacking, but the editing/HDR processing is well done.

I like how the HDR isn't overdone. I don't know what other options you could have for shooting angles, but a different viewing angle could add the "interestingness" that people are looking for. For what its worth though, I do like this shot.
