    Wonderful photo! Look at the natural lines that lead our eyes right into or under the bridge. I think it would work, too, to crop out the bright sky that is not much to look at. Say crop down to the 'y; of that leafless tree in the center. The bridge is your main subject and that crop leaves our eyes right there. Maybe, however, the trees add a sense of scale.

    What a great job the Park Service has done with Civil War battle fields.

    BTW A famous statement from a tourist at Gettysburg. "You think with all the bullets and canon balls that were flying around during the battle that some of these statues would have been hit."

    Looking at the creek, it is hard to imagine that it ran red with blood as accounts of the battle describe.

    I agree that cropping out a lot of the sky would put the opening under the bridge around one-third down from the top. I really like the reflection of the trees in the stream in the lower left. Great job!
