    It is quite busy...but not so much that I can't look at it. My eye jumps around the image but doens't leave it. By some standards, that alone makes it a great image.

    I like the smooth texture of the water and how the reflection is out of focus, thereby giving it some form or texture...it contrasts perfectly with the sharp lines of the reeds.

    A simple image but I think it's very good.

    I found myself alternating between liking and not liking this image and I think this is because of the competing elements. The busy reeds and reflection, the blurred trees also reflected, there's something jarring about it. Have you tried it as a b&w? However it is an interesting image!

    I like the little designs the reeds and reflections make, and I like it overall, but maybe the B&W will help it out. Will try it later. Thanks.
