Good shoot. But like many have already said the stick is to distracting, I try not to change a scene put if it is easy and detrimental like the stick I will. If you do go back consider putting more image in the top area, like what is up there or where is the waterfall coming from, it may not due anything but I kept looking up there.
I'm gonna go out on a limb (no pun intended) and say that I always shoot a scene as found, no changes (the golfer in me, I guess). I take whatever Mother Nature hands me and work around it. The stick there tells a story - a recent windstorm, maybe a racoon fight in some tree, etc *LOL* Each to their own opinion, tho. I really like this shot, but then again, I'm a real sucker for waterfalls!
