Well, I'm going to go for the opposite viewpoint I really like the way that the bridge disappears off into the fog - not only is is a good example of an impressive feat of architecture and engineering, but it's got a nice mournful feeling to it - and the bench really emphasizes this; to me it suggests that modern society is no longer interested in sitting watching the world just go by, or in marvelling at such inspiring creations... pretentious, moi?
Perhaps you could draw more attention to the bridge and the fog by "twiddling" (I'm dead technical, y'know!) the brightness, contrast, saturation and exposure (I'm using iPhoto - no idea what the equivalent options are in Picasa or Photoshop).
Since the competition has finished, here's how I'd have adjusted it - I dropped the brightness and saturation, increased the contrast, and then brought the exposure level back up.
This has darkened out the bottom area, which some may not like - although IMO it splits the image into 3 bands of dark/grey/light which is quite nice. Although now your attention is drawn away from the bench (it doesn't quite stand out as much), you still know it's there - leaving your eye to be drawn along the bridge into the distance...
