I didn't get in before to tell you how much I like this image, but I do. The POV is perfect with the houses leading in from the upper left, the long shadow from the lower left, and the bridge itself from the lower right. I love the way my eye is drawn into and through the elements of this capture. Light and colors are lovely and the scene itself, well it's so worth the detour you took to get this.
