Interesting subject for sure, but I like it. The exposure and conversion to BW looks great. I think that perhaps getting lower, and angling the camera up a hair, to make the bridge just look TOWERING would have been a cool approach and angle, though what you have is very nice!

great nostagic and ancient feel to the image

Border adds to this shot.

Good angle, I think B&W works well here.

nice - feels like an old photo - but one that has lost foreground interest

I like the combination of b&w with old arches, they complement each other very well. Also, I like the detail on the arches. I'm not really in love with the sky and the sharpness sort of looks funky, but other than that great shot.
