I see you have used the tree trunks at the sides and the branches to frame the main subject (puddle and ducks). Good thinking, but I donít think it works all that well here. The picture gets sort of heavy. I think this would have been better if you cropped of the tree trunks, but then I think you will run into another weakness with this picture; Branches partly covering the ducks. I think a slightly lower point of view would have been better for this subject.
