Lake at dusk

I recently took this picture of the University of East Anglia (UEA) Broad (man made lake) at dusk. I was trying to use the foreground trees to provide some framing for the shot, but I'm not sure if this works too well, as the foreground elements intruded further into the frame than I ideally wanted.

Camera settings : f14, 20sec, ISO 500

Would be very grateful to hear anyone's thoughts about this, or how it could have been done better.

Nicely done on composition here, I like the reflections in the water

Re: Lake at dusk

I agree with you about the foliage. Getting just enough to do the framing without letting it overwhelm and appear cluttered might take some trial and error in each different setting you attempt this with. At lot depends on the feeling you are trying to convey and what results you're happy with.

Re: Lake at dusk

I agree about the foliage also, perhaps if you could move a little farther around and have the building more in view, leading the eye into the scene. That said, the reflection and overall composition of the scene is outstanding.
