Another panoramic I'm afraid. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I realise there is a lot of black and dead space.

Unfortunatelly you have an alignment issue at the very begining of the bridge, also the first towers seem to be slightly out of focus and I think you pushed levels to the extreme here, tone it down a bit to gain clean contrast.

Highlights are blown out and CA around some of the lights
Name on the boat under the bridge would need to be removed

These kinds of shots are really hard to pull off to meet iStock's standards. The difficulty is in capturing the highlights without blowing them, while still getting in enough detail at the darker end. I think there's too much blown highlight here with red halos too, plus, as CHBD mentions, you've got some bad compositing on the left side on the bridge cables.
If you have the RAW file to work from, I'd see if you can recover more of the highlights and redo the stitching.

thanks CHBD, totally missed the alignment issue. I will have another crack and tone done the levels.
Thanks cmannphoto - highlights are a tricky one here -if I exposed for them it would be a pretty dark photo. Any tips for getting rid of the CA around the lights? thanks
