Historic Bridge in St. Ives, UK. It has been there for a very long time. Have always liked this bridge. All that was done to this photo was the levels were altered slightly and the hue and saturation were slighltly uped...

:: Hello from the Critique Club ::

A lovely bridge and nice clear, open scene.

You had some good light too, but the sky is quite dull. Therefore I would have featured more lower foreground and less sky. The composition would have been stronger due to the wildlife and water texture. Depending on how much water there was in front of you you could have simply pointed lower down, but if there wasn;t much more then you could have got closer to the bridge and shot it a dynamic angle gaining more details in the process.

Getting lower to the water would definitely have added some points as the effect of this is very dynamic and brings the viewer away from eye-level (which is where everyone expects to view a shot).
You could also consider getting an ND filter and stopping down to f16 or so, then setting a longer shutter speed. This would enable the water to rush by seemingly like glass. It would obviously not be suitable for the geese and ducks though.

Keep it up.

The sky is nice, and the bridge is somewhat interesting; but the composition doesn't do much for me here.

In my opinion, it would have been nice to rotate the pic a little.

The modern-looking buildings on the left don't sit too well with the bridge. Perhaps they could be cropped out.

I like how there is only one white duck in the picture

i like the shots. the ducks add to it. i would have put the bridge higher in the frame and let the ducks direct your eye to the bridge
