Can someone tell me if I got the 'anchor' right please? I see the anchor as the sky reflected in the stream in the front of the photo.

I saw this image previously but refrained from commenting until I saw what others had to say.
But as no one has commented, I'll throw in my tuppenceworth, Antoinnette.
I understand your idea of anchoring the scene with the reflection of the sky in that strip of f/g water but for me there is not enough of a reflection or a big enough strip of water to achieve that.
I feel the image would be better if you were to crop just above the dark strip beyond the water, allowing the branch shadows and patterns to act as a base to the shot.
I had been hoping to see what others might feel, but no such luck.
Hope my suggestion does not offend if it is contrary to what you might be wishing to hear.

Thank you for you critique Ronnie. I always value you opinion and take it on board. I like you critiquing my photos!

I have however had this photo critique professionally by a photographer by the name of Stan Bowman. He said similar about the water, but rated my picture 9.4/10.

I take on all positive criticism as is both your and his.
Thank you Ronnie Smile
