It's a very busy shot.All the surroundings around the tree has sufficated the willow tree and has become very distracting,which doesn't bring out the best in the reflection.

Cut off the upper part, turn it upside down, saturate it a little bit, and you have a terrific shot!!

Good suggestion Rense.
I was looking at this aswell, thinking that I liked the potential of the shot, but that it needed something more. An actual idea to help you is beyond me at this point however

I would agree that it seems quite busy and distracting at present. Would like to see what direction you might take it though. And in the very least I like the idea.

Cool, artsy shot, Dave. I looked at it several times before replying, and it gets better each time. I didn't see the original without Rense's suggestions incorporated. Could you post it again - it would be a good learning excercise for me (Lord knows I nead the learning).

i knew there was something i liked about this subject.... but the trees and foliage behind it was very distracting...
but along came rense to the rescue..... 2 heads (or more) are better than one...
i did as he suggested, and the 'effect' and composition came to being...
