    looks fine to me, your bodies response will be the ultimate judge on wether it is good.

    You might want to add some bent over laterals (either cable or db...I prefer cable, JMO) unless you are hitting rear delts on back day which is what many do.

    Also, try some wide grip uprights for delts. I don't use them every shoulder workout but I like to throw them in every so often.

    the key to the above mentioned exercise is wide grip...if your grip is to narrow its a trap exercise. wide grip upright rows work killer.

    Drop either the DB or the BB shrugs - I suggest dropping the BB shrugs because they put your muscles in a less natural position than the DB shrugs.

    My routine looks almost identical to yours but I also do military press on shoulder day.

    Get rid of the front raises.

    3 sets of press is OK i guess.

    drop down to 1-2 sets of side lats.

    LeviathanX called it with the shrugs.

    you might want to give seated presses to the front using a barbell in the 6-8 range for 3-4 sets in addition to what you are all ready doing. But everything you are doing looks good.
