Love it!!! I'm assuming your shutter speed was slow for the foggy-ish water effect?
 
Can you try some filter effects and maybe get more separation? Not sure how you do your B&W conversions, so maybe that has already been tried???

Like make it color?

I just dump the saturation the raw editor and then tweak the settings after that.

The green areas were darkened during the conversion. You need to pull the green slider down until the trees are much lighter than the bridge. There might be a point where they become much too light and look very strange, but maybe you'll get good separation before you reach that point.

That was a pro tip right there!

No, I don't mean like make it color; I mean using some filter effects in Lightroom, or other editing app. Like Orange filter, Green filter,Yellow filter for example...just the Adobe Lightroom default ones...

Green filter

Orange filter and finally, the old, classic Yellow filter. As you can see, the Yellow filter provides a LOT of separation between the bridge and the greenery, just with one,single click.
