Greetings from the Critique Club!

Ahh, love shots like this. Nice peaceful scene, serene natural setting, silky water, the bent and twisted branch rising from the water in the lower left anchoring the focal point. Great b/w tones.

My only nitpick: It's a very safe shot, there are no risks being taken in terms of POV or composition. You probably could have left the shutter open much longer to enhance the feel of the water, too.

Feel free to PM me with any questions,

Susan

Sort of a pen and ink look to this. Like the tones.
