OK, Dan - so what do you want us to look at, in particular?

Serial posting of shots from the same session won't usually get you any additional ideas or options...

One feature worthy of note is the rope dangling on the right. Is it a plus or a minus? I'm inclined to say that it needs to be visibly hanging from a branch to make much of a contribution to the image... The alternative is to clone it out.

Once again, Daniel, you have a large black block on the right of the image, and that area has little to offer in the way of interest.
Also, you have intrusions like the reeds at the bottom right and the rope top right. The structure ar left is unrecognisable and simply confuses the eye. The overhead branches are ok because there is enough of them to make them a feature of the image.

I immediately wanted to straighten the water line, but found that the image was already straight, i.e. the reflections fall straight down. So the black line in the centre slopes down at the bottom but is straight at the top.
With a reflection such as this, an image will often look better if the water's edge is in the centre of the frame, so I have done this in my modification. My crop removes the structure and the rope, and I cloned out the reeds.

I like the subject, the cloud formations, and the colours of the sunset.

John's question is extremely relevant.
