    Default Duck in rippled reflection

    I was with students looking to take a "reflection" photo myself as part of their list of exercises.
    This little stream was completely shadowed in foliage that provided a nice green hue to the light and its reflections

    I have cropped this one slightly and sharpened it a little, no other PP done.
    Any suggestions on how best to prepare this one ?

    I like it but just not sure what it needs.

    Cheers

    I guess you could play around with lightening the shadows slightly, if you're thinking of printing, it might be a bit dark. Other than that, you could try some different crops, but to me, it looks great as is.
