This is a very pleasing and interesting photograph. I was taken with it immediately, for it's simplicity and clarity of view. A bit moody, a bit mysterious. Water is an ever-fascinating subject, and this one is no exception. The color treatments are such a big part of the artist's intention that I won't dare say which you should use, other than say, use what you feel was your expression.
The green moss provides a simple and uncomplicated focal point of the photograph. And the water is rendered in an honest way and not overtly romanticized by slow motion. There's beautiful light play in the photograph, and after all, that's what it's about. The framing is excellent. There's enough, but not too much content and there are no distracting elements.
I the the technical aspects are spot on. It's getting close to being too dark, and care will have to be take in printing this, but as it shows on my screen, I think the exposure is very believable for this picture. Very nice.
