Just perfect. Here's what I like about it: Good composition, nice subject, gorgeous yet soft/subtle colors with the background perfectly matching the subject, perfect focus, perfect shutter speed to make water soft with razor sharp subject, nice side lighting with good fill, perfect time of day. Great shot.
