Thanks, I took also the other - overshot - composition looking at the front of the Mill but I'm much happier with this one especially since it wasn't that easy to find a right vantage point

Nice composition. The unusual structure in the foreground certainly adds interest.

Thanks! The foreground structure is a water channel that was supplying water to the mill in the background.

Perspective, finding a good vantage point, is important. You made good use of your 20-40 lens here.

Personally, I would perhaps have gone a little easier on the greens in post (trying to protect the saturated ones?) and left a bit more of the natural reflections on them (less "aggressive" use of CPL, if that was involved). But that is nitpicking about a shot that I would be proud of having accomplished myself. I recall quite a few shots of that or similar watermills, and yours stands out for its fresh perspective and impeccable execution.
