Great Light and reflection.
 If it were mine I'd crop off the right side (almost 1/3), and get rid of the heavy looking clump of trees.

Yes. I'd be tempted to do the same.

Yes, good suggestion but other than that it's a delightful image.

Be Brave...
and try a square crop a little tighter on the left and remove all the dark stuff on the right up to the clearing between the trees and see if you like it ;-)

David...I really like it! I think it is even better than the original one. A magic of 6x6 format!
Thanks.

Thanks Pramote glad you liked it !
  The light and composition was so good on the majority of the image, but that right side just seemed to drag it downhill imho.

It's been a long time since I shot square format and I still revisit it occasionally with crops of some files.

In the process of cropping, I also did a little cleanup with the clone tool, of some of the stray branches that remained on the right side.

Yes, now one is able to experience some of what drew you in the original moment, and further helps you by absorbing this in isolating what it is that draws you in for future captures...
