Hi Valery.
Must say you have a very fine capture here, first off a macro lens would be no good as you would not have been able to get close because of the water, as you have used the long end of the zoom it has compressed the perspective giving a beautiful smooth effect to the water, the image is sharp with a great reflection, well done my friend excellent photography.

Regards

Trev.

Gold-plated, Valery. Wonderful reflection and the menisci are so clear under the feet.
