I am sure you've already been told, but the bottom could be cropped off. The rest of the shot is quite good and I don't see much else to improve upon.

if the hues and levels are done right, this could end up a postcard :)

Nice shot. If this wasn't for the metal competition, I'd say the forground could use a little more light.

I live in St Louis. This is one of the best pics of the arch I have seen

I think this might do better if you cropped out the black section at the bottom of the picture. It doesn't really seem to do much for the composition. Other than that, good job.

Beautiful! great job, normally I would say no centereing but this is perfect. I like the hint of tree on the left to give you some more depth to it. extra point cause I like it so much. Good job

Good luck

Nice, but I think it would improve it if some of the dark bottom was cropped off.

I would have liked this much better if there was not so much of the dark areas around the bottom and side.

If this image were mine, I would have cropped a little off the bottom and made the border smaller. Just a different point of view. Color, clarity, DOF, POV all excellent. 7 - good luck in the challenge!

I was born in St. Louis. Great image of the arch.

foreground is quite dark, don't you think? a tighter crop would make this a lighter photo. great angle, though.

Interesting idea, foreground needs a little more detail (light)
I would advise to expose for the reflection and use a graduated ND filter to balance the exposure in the sky.
