Thanks for the votes and comments. I actually loved the sticks in the f/g. Was glad to see them there. Being familiar with this spot it was my biggest gripe...lack of f/g.
Balances the image out nicely. Congrats to all with their entries. Loved voting on it

Excelent shot Rain this would have also scored well in the eleven challenge with those sticks.

Nice Rian well done. A 6th place and now a 5th place. Your mojo is working.
I might have tried to clone out those distant power lines on the right but it didn't really detract from the image so not a big point.
Congrats again on a Top 5

This is very beautifully done at a very popular spot :) The processing is wonderful and you must have had the hide to yourself to get a long exposure without wobble. Pity they have placed those darn fake perches for the birds... Maybe no one else will notice. Could be one of three togs I know.

Well done. Those individual sticks add a lot to me.

Had the sky been darker it would've matched the water, then the title would be perfect balance and a 10. 9 from me
