This would really be an excellent picture if it wasn't for the distracting foreground on the right, I would've gone for a higher aperature to obtain an infinite DOF or would of tried a higher POV eliminating the light bright green foreground. You could even crop 1/3 of the bottom off and I think that would work as well. The exposure on every thing else is right on target. Next time you get an opportunity to get a shot similiar, try multiple exposure settings & POV. Paul :)

I agree with Paul's assessment of the foreground being distracting, Jay.

Otherwise it is truly a beautiful photo and perfect in every way.

I have done a ws, hope you don't mind.

Thank you.
