I have attempted to get a shot of a tree and it's reflection in water. However, I'm not sure if I like how it came out. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

I think the whole image is overexposed, the top half more than the lower -- but both would benefit from adjustment. With that particular tree, I'd be tempted to crop it higher, focusing attention more on the water and eliminating the unbalanced top -- but that's taste.

couple of comments

based on the reflection, the sky was beautiful. Looks like you let the camera set the exposure for the tree and not the scene. which blew out the sky.

What were you taking a picture of? the reflection? then why all the other stuff. The building? the shrubs on the left (that draw my eye)?

the grass in the foreground is of little importance but it does give the photo depth so its does have value. I would suggest use a tripod and shoot manual.

I would salvage this image by cropping from the lower right corner up to the shadow line behind the tree. (keeping aspect ratio)

The good thing about trees over models and birds is it won't mind a re-shoot.

PhotosByChuck, looking the image over and over. I would say you are right, it is really over exposed. Thanks for the cropping suggestion, I'll give it a shot.

BobEdens, Thanks for your suggestions and comments as well. & Yes, that is the nice thing about trees. ha!
