3 - Difficult, perhaps a more refined crop, especially at the bottom may have given this a little extra - also incorporating more on the sides, which I'm guessing you didn't have or would have included. Overall a little dark, like to see more detail in both the gazebo and view, so perhaps a deeper dof. Lighting tweaked too, especially for the gazebo, but likely difficult, especially in basic. Nice view, just needs a more refined 'framing' in my opinion, 'somehow'.

It looks beautiful there, I can see why you took that shot.

There's something that isn't working for me though, and I'm having a hard time putting my finger on it. I think the thickness of the gazebo at the top is distracting me, especially since the sides are narrower--reminds me of when someone tries to add a border in photoshop and they get the proportions wrong. It seems to draw my eye away from the garden, and makes it look stretched out and flat. I'd try reshooting in more flattering light, and stepping back to allow more of the sides of the gazebo in the shot.
