There is some excessive noise reduction or blurring of some kind going on here. I'm divided on if I like the effect or not.

The branch look nice but is a little annoying due to it being a little low. Otherwise a great image.

I think the post-processing on this works much better with the middle and background more so than with the tree branches. While they work compositionally, I think they are rather distracting the way there were processed.

The branch would make a great frame, except that it encloses only a part of the shoreline and leaves out the refelction and larger body of water. Nice exposure, lighting and definition.

Nice scene. The tree is a little too intrusive. I think I'd like the shot better shifted to the right so that the tree was more of a frame than a third of the picture.

though I like the shot and I like HDR the colors in this are taken a bit to far...if it was just a touch softer

Not sure about the striped pole in this composition. Also the halos around the tree branches are very visible. I assume this is a HDR composite?

The large branch does a good job at creating a feeling of being there, peeking out into the scene, which is a simple marsh, nothing dramatic, and the tone mapping does help add some flavor to the mellow drama.

I love the soft look.
Coming out of deep winter sleep?
