Greetings from the Critique Club!

A very nice shot with the composition and textures.

The colors on the branch seem a bit blown or washed out. While I can see the different textures on the branch, the lack of tonal difference in the colors make it all seem flat and a bit boring. The green blade or start of branch adds a nice touch but again the color seems a bit flat.

Maybe an adjustment on the curves or levels would help really make this shot pop.

Other than that, you have a great start on this shot.

Great detail on the log/branch. The crackling might have been enhanced a bit by playing with the color levels...you might have also darken the water creating a nice contrast. Still very good composition and a nice shot.
