Behind The Lens

Location
My wife and I took a day trip to Banff, Alberta. During the trip we stopped at many locations to enjoy the day. This particular photo is of Two Jack Lake, a very popular place for divers, kayakers and people looking to enjoy the Rocky Mountains.
Time
This photo was taken mid afternoon, you can see the shadows on the mountains ever slightly.
Lighting
I tried to capture the correct level of green, between the light green grass and the dark green evergreens. No additional lighting or flash was used.
Equipment
This photo was taken with a Nikon D3200 DSLR with a 50mm M/Focus Lens.
Inspiration
I have taken a trip every year to this place and for some reason the framing of the tree in the foreground, the lake and mountains in the background just felt like a nice photo.
Editing
I did some slight down saturation on the photo i think less than 10% just to remove some of the brightness from the sun.
In my camera bag
My camera bag is typically used for shooting films. My standard lens is a 50 mm manual focus as i like the look of the image. I also have some high speed SD Cards.
Feedback
Any photo taken in landscape the question i would ask myself, if i take my time and relax look through the lens and what i see is it something that would interest others as well? if the answer is no, then i move left, right, squat and maybe the perspective of the image will change just enough to pop.
