A lovely image, Tish!
Could I suggest that you set the exposure compensation to, maybe 1 stop underexposed?
It's worth experimenting to see what works best.
You could try 'bracketing', as well.
Just a thought.
Regards,
Richard

You certainly can suggest using exposure compensation, just discovering it's vertues.

I can't believe you are uninformed Herman, but I do know exactly what Richard means. I have been struggling with overexposure in bright light and this is a good example of that on the stepping stones and some of the leaves.

Hi Tish I agree with **** as I know you want to improve your photography.
Looking at this lovely imag the only fault I can see Tish is the slight burn out on the stepping stones.
And it all depends on how far you want to go to turn a good picture into a great picture.
My first thought is that the overexposure is very small and if you were shutting in RAW you could adjust the exposure after the image is taken.
Next thought is bracketing and for that to work you need your camera rock steady so it should be done with a tripod. And if you want to take your hobby to the next level a tripod makes a lot of sence.
The one I use must be thirty years old and a bit heavy but I could not take a lot of images without it.
Just a thought and trying to help.
All the best and still a lovely image.
John.

Thank you Richard for both the mod and the advice, both are equally invaluable.

John, your advice is more than welcome and always beneficial........... you correctly identified that this was handheld................. I feel less conspicuous using a tripod than I use to since most people are patient and wait for me to set up and shot before they cross the path of the intended image................ Of course there are still those few who think it is fun to obscure the potential image............ I am now often asked if I will take a photograph of pets or children and send them on by e-mail, which I am always happy to do since it gives me the experience I need and the confidence to get out the tripod or even allow myself to be seen.

Not going to add much to what has been said but I think it's lovely. The movement in the water has been very well captured, and given the location it's virtually impossible to get a balanced exposure in one shot, so I for one think you did well.
