Why, oh why, was the flash turned on here? All it did was totally blow out the already distracting organic element in the top right of the frame (which means you shot this vertical with the shutton button down—you'll be steadier if you support the lens barrel from beneath, with the shutter button above your eye, by the way.) But there was no reason to use flash, based on the non-blown leaves on the left of the frame! But between the distracting strobe-obliterated reeds, the bald sky, and the centered composition, we're looking at an overall weak composition.
