Bracket! Also, I noticed that the rocks could be a tad crisper. Use of f/22 is OK as long as you understand that along with the greater depth of field, you lose sharpness due to diffraction. Try to keep it at/below f/11 for best sharpness. Read up on the use of hyperfocal distance to get the whole thing in really sharp focus. Here's a link to a calculator: http://www.dofmaster.com/dofjs.html
