What needs to be sharp is beautifully sharp and I like the main tree coming from the left edge, it looks really good. It's that small piece of branch on the right that bothers me, it looks a bit random but if you took it out then I fear all the water and attention might drain out of the right edge. I do find it draws attention to itself. That bright bit by the boat - a window? Does cloning that out improve things?

I tend to agree with Nicholas on the reflection of the branches, I think your presentation would become stronger if you crop that part off so as to reduce the cluttered element at the bottom side.

For me this is one of those scenes with a lot of potential, but the shot falls a little short. The issue for me is that the boat and the trees in the background hold the interest, but so much of the frame is devoted to the branches. IMO the impact would increase if you cropped out the reflection and presented it more in landscape format. Nick

I agree.
