    That sky (and reflection) is gorgeous!!

    I love the 'silhouette' look of the dark trees against the sky and water. So I'm not 100% sure, yet, if I like the 'green' look of the two trees in the foreground. It might be less interesting, though, if they weren't there. Will have to stare at it some more to try to figure it out.

    (Okay, I've looked at this one a few more times, and have tried to visualize it without the illuminated trees in the foreground. I now think they add to the shot. But have you cropped it down to show just part of the trunk on the tree on the right?)

    No. That's how I framed it. I did several, with and without the dingle.
    And I took one with more of the right trunk (to invasive), and no right trunk (looked odd with the leaves at the top and nothing supporting).
    I went with this.
    It balances the left tree and competes just enough, pulling your eye right before it goes back centre and left. This gives some tension and counterpoints the calmness of the background.
