I really enjoy all the different hues of green that this shot encompasses. It is really stunning that you have been able to bring so many out in processing. I love the boat in the foreground, the reflections of it in the rippled water really is a treat for the eye.

I also like the perspective of which you shot from, and where you have placed the horizon in this shot. It really works out beautifully. I kind of wish that we were a bit closer to the windmill however, I initially didnt fully encompass it was a mill until I read your title and searched through the photo for it. I didnt get to this one in the challege, but I do wonder if that hurt you a bit from the speed voters. Again, Lovely and tranquil, serene shot. Thanks for sharing.

for me it is a little too much HDR(ish) very interesting leading lines that do draw you to look further

did you consider a portrait layout featuring just the boat, the mill and the right hand bank? - good luck

nice and simple, peaceful...but there is a bit of dullness un the sky and water that could have been tweaked in PP
