I´ll try a critique but keep it unofficial. What makes the image powerful is the closeness of the right side of the arch to the viewer. It took a second to re-focus after looking at the far side. It almost hits the viewer in the face. Clever! The patch of blue sky under the peak of the arch works well too: the orange and blue contrast effectively. The angle of the arch to the viewer also adds interest. I´ve seen lots of views of this arch - and lots of angles - and it´s easy to lose impact by choosing a predictable angle. Including lower rock in the bottom right corner gives perspective; showing how far up the arch is. You leave the right side of the arch open; probably more interesting that way. It seems like you took a long time choosing just the right position. It takes a while to see your planning. Delightful. Thanks for letting others enjoy it.

Beautiful view!  I like the little patch of blue sky surrounded by various rocks.  Also, Arches NP is one of my favorite places.
