A beautiful scene, Bill, with an interesting play of light and strong colours within the water. It has the look of a painting. You don't say whether or not you edited the picture. I'm not sure why you needed 800 iso, but perhaps it was dark beneath the canopies of the trees. Where the light penetrates through the canopy, those areas have suffered from the brightness and are lacking detail. Also, there is a lot of blue within the image. I have done modification where I used Frank's suggestion for the crop, adjusted the colour and levels. The crop moves the water more to the centre, but does tend to focus attention in that area. See what you think.
Pamela.

Thanks Pamelajean for your critique. The image was in a very dark area so I used settings that would capture the lighting as I saw it. I did rework the image some to lighten it up.
Your version of the image changes it from what I saw. I must say your version does bring out the features of the cedar tree much better. To post the image again I think I'd go more the way you edited it. I learned a couple of things thanks to your help.
Cheers
