Beautiful lake in the south of Germany. In the background the Alps rise to the sky. Mirror-smooth water surface and extreme silence. A great place.

I assume that you used focus stacking here. What really bugs me here, is that the flower closest to the camera is in focus, afterwards it gets blurry and the background is sharp again.
Also you've got some rather strong halos above the trees right in the middle.

I really love the location and composition, but you should use more pictures for your stack and maybe try to get rid of the halos. (For the halos a brush with negative clarity in Lightroom works usually pretty good in my images).

This picture would easily be a 4, maybe even a 5

Thank you so much for your review. This really helps me a lot and shows me that I have to concentrate much more on taking pictures. In my next pictures I will pay attention to your tips. Thank you for your help and for taking the time.
