    I think the processing and overall ambient lighting matches the position you chose for the flare very well! I’m loving the subtle effect you’ve processed into the shadows and highlights, overall. The long exposure is nice, and surprisingly I’m OK with the slight background blur. I feel like it adds to the painterly feel of the image overall.

    These foreground twigs, however, are a bit of a distraction. Whenever I stare at this image overall for long enough, and imagine the scene without these foreground sticks, The shot REALLY looks amazing! I know that framing the twigs out of the shot might have involved actually stepping into the river, though, haha. Maybe not a good option!
