Sorry, but this is a bland scene shot from eye level with awkward exposure settings. It is actually well composed but you need to stop down a bit increase exposure time, use some fill lighting (or let the ambient light enter the censor) and maybe even use some muted flash. Also, try crouching down to bring in some detail and use a tripod if the light is poor.

lovely scene, better focus would have made this a wonderful entry. the soft focus on the trees is a little distracting to me, a tripod would have helped. nice though

It seems a bit underexposed. Was that the desired effect?

Although it is a realtive nice water reflection image, it just doesn't tell me much about the area and its attractions, its culture, people, history, etc. I would have tried to include more visual information about activities (boats, swans, people, historical buildings - if available, etc.). Good luck with it.

A very nice scene - peaceful. Too bad the models are fairly hidden in the sahoows.

The photo is too dark, and I can't see any swans...
