I can't decide whether the white boder detracts from the pic or not.

i'm not even going there. it's your taste whether you want as little border as possible or not. in a very detailed landscape shot I keep them small, but that is up to you. white is fine.
and most important, it is a beautiful atmospheric shot, the lake is very natural and the sky and the silhouettes are grand. and you gave them all the space they need.

Well let's face it, only us photographers see the end product unframed, unbordered etc so I think it makes a change to see a frame. Anyway, besides all that, I love the capture

The important thing is if you like the border. Sometimes, if I cannot make my mind up about a particular border, or presentation of a shot, I will save 2 or three different versions in my WIP (Work in Progress) file for a few days to see which one I end up liking best.

The most important thing is the image, and this is a beautiful one. The light is good as is the sense of space the sky and the line of the lake gives. The overhead branches make you feel part of the scene.

In this image you have made the ordinary very attractive. The frame is ok as long as it stays slim, plain, [no frills] and no thicker than it is now. Shoreline lead-in and bit of diagonal path...all good. TG

I'm playing with frames at the moment (not very successfully I might add!!). This one doesn't detract from the image so it's totally fine and is down to your taste. Lovely sky colour and a well worked vertical composition.

The very narrow strip of white makes the whites in the photo "pop"....I think it's great.
