real nice layout and perspective.
perhaps a little less soft focus on this (especially the castle), would push this higher.

i like how the house is in focus but the lake is not, however the clouds are in focus a little but, in the church you can see lots of detail which is nice
but it think that the lake is almost too much negative space
