Thanks.

Similarly, the plants against the water and the trees against the sky look unnatural. I can't tell you exactly what my eye saw, but the instant your photo loaded I thought "over-sharpened". A friend uses the term "crunchy" and I think that's a good word for too much sharpening.

I'm pretty sensitive to it because when I first started PP, I over-sharpened many photos (it's a particularly mean thing to do to someone who's just beginning to age or has even a little acne ;-)). I still have several of them on the wall and every time I walk by that's all I see.

I do like the light and the hues in the trees in this photo.
