Greetings from the Critique Club!
First Impression: Gorgeous, even with the barbed wire. ;) Love the pastels and the ability to see down into the lake as well as the reflection on the smooth surface.

Challenge: At first I questioned the entry for this challenge ... to me a jetty is a barrier used for water flow control. But I googled it and the second definition indicates that boats can also dock at a jetty. So in that regard, definitely empty! But this picture seems so full of interesting things to look at and beautiful colors it's still hard for me to equate it with emptiness. Based on the updated definition though ... I'm game.

Composition, Details, Etc: I love how the empty jetty (see I'm learning!) leads the eye off into the distance to encounter those wonderful trees on the distant shore. The shore in turn pulls the eye to the warm sun-touched clouds. I LOVE that I can see the rocks under the water. This picture is so clear I even found myself looking for a fish down there photo-bombing the serenity of the scene.
