Very artistic approach. The overexposure at the top is too distracting. The boathouse seems to lean to the left too much. How did you get these colors with only a slight increase in contrast? Seems that something else is in play here.

Definitely an impressionistic look to this photo

I am not sure your image depicts what you intend in your title. The portrait orientation makes the image more edgy, and ultimately gives a spooky kind of feel.

More sharpness would be better.

the soft focus has killed it and added to the OOF

I'm a sucker for reflections and I especially appreciate the beauty of the greens in this image. Although the oof treatment gives the effect of a painting I think I'd prefer to see more detail. Please understand that my sight is not as good as it used to be so I have a preference for seeing things as sharp as possible :-) Kudos for trying a different approach.

Looks artistically inspired and impressionist but I don't like the central framing of the horizon and structure.
