Compositionally, there is a good balance between the grass and the water. The line, however, looks a bit odd, contextually. My first thought, based on the title, was that it was a fishing pole, but it doesn't look like a fishing pole. It just looks like a stick going across the frame. It may have been helpful if you could have gotten wider and included the tip of the pole -- it would have given a definite starting/stopping point for the line, and given the shot some more context.
Technically, I like the selective focus used. The bw and contrast level is also done very well.
Overall, a nicely done shot. It meets the challenge, but there isn't as much context, I think, to really connect with the voters.
Best to you in future challenges.
