Yup. The thing that catches my attention first is the perspective also. it being standing water in place it acts like a carpenter's level. So you can't fudge the ground plane. To the right should be more ground as if it's a bird's eye view.
I always look to the subject as the thing you want to change least, therefore the rest of the surrounding area has to match it. It would also change the perspective on your fence to a 3/4 down shot or whatever you have going.
Edit: oh yeah, the bench too.
