That's a nice shot taken from an interesting angle. It certainly has vanishing points.

The contrasts between sunlight and shadow in this shot detract from the potential beauty of the shot. The extreme shadows hide a lot of detail. If you have an opportunity, you might want to try it again when the sun is in a better position so that the bridge is not in shadow.

As for the challenge, I don't see any vanishing point or converging lines. One might say there is a vanishing point at the end of the road but it is not well defined.

I looked and looked and looked and even thought about getting out my ruler but I think Cal is right the vanishing point is not well defined at all.

The shadow cast by the bridge could have been a central point in this shot. I'll make this statement and then probably regret saying it later.

A somewhat pedestrian photo of the brdige. For documentary purposes the shot works but it doesn't have a lot of impact.
