Great find. Personally though I think you can do much better with it, by finding a different perspective or getting in close to let the age of the bridge do the storytelling.

The foreground branches are a bit distracting, and then the wires really take a bit of the charm away. The reflection is quite nice, but I feel as though the goal to incorporate that has added other distracting/detracting elements.

Just a thought, but I'd get to this same spot/subject and really explore other perspectives and framing options, as you're on to something, but I feel as though this one leaves just a bit more desired by the viewer.

I think that this could use a little sharpening. I do like the composition
