The first thing that struck me about this image is the richness in color - the rust color of the bridge versus the earth colors of stone and moss. The entire scene vibrant and well-exposed. The main critique I have on this is composition:

The architectural leading line of the bridge traversing up towards the upper right-hand corner is strong. The natural leading line disappearing into infinity behind the rocks is forceful. Separately, they make great focal elements, but here they're equally strong and competing with each other, therefore diluting the impact of the photo. It's like you couldn't decide whih was more important - the man-made bridge or the natural flow of water. My suggestion in this case - if possible - a) is to step to the left and shoot from a lower position, making the leading line of the bridge more prominent and the diminishing perspective of the waterfall in closer agreement, or b) step to the right, let the waterfall be the greater focal element passing under the bridge and resist the temptation to have your second leading line begin so prominently from the lower-right hand corner.
