I feel the reeds actually block a very nice view.

Hello, I have made it a point for this challenge to comment on every photo that I scored under a 4.

I scored this photo a 3 for the following reason(s):

1. Image size. Always try to use the maximum pixel dimensions allowed by DPC. There are tutorials on the site that should help you achieve this if needed.

2. Focus issues. The over-all feel of the photo for me is one of a lack of clarity due to a lack of focus. It also looks like a bit of over-sharpening was then applied to try and get that clarity back in post, resulting in subtle haloing.

3. Lack of focal point. It's a nice twilight scene(although I get a feeling of hue-shifting), but the sticks and bracken just serve to render the scene in chaos. I don't feel they add to the photo in any real way.

I like the color and mood of this. The foreground plants could be a little crisper.
