I'm interested in some feedback on this image. It's an IR image processed with Nikon Capture and Silver Efex Pro 2.
The image was taken on Peachtree Creek in Atlanta. This is very much an urban stream, but has potential and is being restored.
This is a winter scene from a cloudy day. The stream was near flood stage and a muddy brown. As you would expect, during the winter there is a lot of visible debris that I was trying to minimize.
Is the image over processed? Too much detail? Any thoughts about all the sticks at the edges? Suggestions?

Technically this image looks good to me, but I would crop most of the lower half of the image. This would delete most of the land and sticks which are dominating the scene and tending to minimize the creek. However, I don't think that anything can be done to make this image a compelling view of the creek. I think that images taken from a different perspective that include more of the creek would be needed, perhaps from a higher viewpoint if that is possible.

IR images are hard to balance out well, I think. It obviously is a counterintuitive tonal scheme that makes it's application tricky.
For this one, I feel that, whilst it's really well composed, there isn't really enough foreground interest on that river bank, I'd prefer more of the water myself - perhaps with some movement in it to add another element.
