I find this a much stronger composition if you crop most of the sky out of the shot (about an inch of the top, so there are no areas of white in the trees)

That way, my eye tends to stay in the scene. It doesn't jump up to the bright, high contrast areas and I stay within the shot that I think you want us to look at.

Nice scene, though the sky is rather blown out.

would like it better with the white (distracting and overexposed) sky cropped out

Very nice sho, love the motion of the water. If it is close I would re shoot with a nd filter and get a blue sky and you will have a winner on your hands.
