    A photography judge would say the leaves are a distraction and should be either cropped out or photshopped out or take the shot without the leaves somehow. The mud in the forground appears a little artificial. The image indicates why one should sell their waterfront property at high tide…and, otherwise, nice shot.

  • Thanks for your comments Phil, noted and appreciated……..cheers Ian
