More than competent, especially since it was basic editing. I really like the off angle, it adds a lot of interest. I agree with whoever commented that the sky needs to be darker. A way to get this in basic is to darken the blues before doing the b&w conversion.
If it were me (take this with a grain of salt, my landscape abilities are caca), I would try two different things. First, I'd get down lower, closer to the water, then shoot up more to get more sky. I think that might be a more interesting angle. Second, I might try a long exposure, to make the water more silky smooth. That would require a ND filter or less light, maybe twilight. Or shoot very early in the morning when there's less wind to disturb the water.
Elegantly competent rendition of sophisticated boredom :-) I'd be happier with more sky and less foreground, the split is too much in the middle and the foreground isn't adding anything much. Now, if there was a model sailboat on the pond left fore or something :-)
Hey another not too bad of a score result :) I like all of the shots. The perspective and leading line on this is cool. Love the reflections, the dripping water in the fountain and the clouds. Very cool photo.
