Very striking composition, and the sky doesn't hurt it a bit. Still would wish for slightly more contrast, but this one is already almost there. --Chris

Very well done Ken.

Please, receive my support for that horrible weather. Here it's a spring-like winter, very unusual, no rain, no snow, no cold... I don't know what will happen this summer. The weather forecast for next week is that finally the cold weather is arriving, we will see...

great shot ken. the bridge looks phenomenal. do you use ps? if so there may be a couple of things you can do about the sky.

firstly - was there any detail in sky before post processing? if so, select it out using the lasso (doesn't need to be perfect, just close) then choose the 'select' menu and click on 'feather'. enter 75 (or anything up to 150 really) pixels in the box that appears. then adjust your levels and curves etc. (i find that this brings out even the smallest detail in the clouds sometimes).

when you're done go back to 'select' menu, click on 'inverse' and then do the feather thing again. now you can adjust the rest of the picture to suit.

you maybe already know all this, but if not i hope it helps. i too was sick of washed out skies.

great pic tho
