"This curious world we inhabit is more wonderful than convenient; more beautiful than it is useful; it is more to be admired and enjoyed than used." - Henry David Thoreau
Self critique here: This would have been a better photo had I tilted the camera up a bit cutting out the shore and capturing more of the trees.
This other photo from the same vantage point, zoomed in some I didn't care for. It brought the kids in too close. Whereas they are the main interest of the photo, you don't want it "in your face". That and too much of the background scenery which sets the scene, is lost.
