My thoughts for what they're worth,
-I like the angle of the first shot better, bridge is more prominent
-The fog really helps, the city is shrouded in mystery
-You captured the colors of the bridge nicely

I think i just like the bridge, lol. The red shininess and the shrouded background make great contrast and the scene appears surreal, sci-fi, CG, whatever. I would try to fix the distortion a little in PS but not worry too much about it. You captured the moment.

Also, I checked out Google's images cuz I wanted to see more of the bridge and your first picture blew everything else away, you should post it there too (don't know how). The second picture is more refined and proper but it doesn't have the feel of the first one.

PS, this is a stitched pano right? Did you use one of those fancy setups? I don't have one, but found when the final image is distorted, it sometimes helps to straighten each individual one and then stitch. Might be worth a try.

Thankyou! I used Autopano to stitch the second shot. First shot was all lightroom stitching. Come to think of it I kind of like the distortion and wide angle effect of having the bridge in the foreground as the main subject. In the second shot it is too low key. This thread has certainly inspired me to shoot more in the city.

It's a beautiful bridge, but controversial for its price at the time of building. It is the nicest piece of functional art in Calgary.

You should get it printed and cover a wall at home. I have a couple I want to do myself.
