I had fixed that in the 1x version of this picture, but a perspective correction was needed - not legal in basic editing.

I expected this to ribbon, it's a terrific photo, visually arresting. I agree with other commenters that the man is an essential element. To nitpick, it could maybe have been more perfectly symmetrical, but not sure it matters.

Using the man in the red shirt was a brilliant move, it provides a great reference point for size and scale in this shot. Beautiful photo.

You've managed to create an image that is exceptionally busy and complex that conveys a sense of simplicity and calm. One of my favorites for this theme.
