Distracting from the subjects are: Kept my shadow in to explain the fence shadow. Kept the floating stick and some outer edges to show how clear the water is and how close it is to the lens. Kept the bottom left plant life in because it is the same green as the subject.
Shot in the harsh light of noonish.
Waited for a gust of wind to blow away the steam so that I could trick the observer into believing that this isn't that hot when it really is a degree less than boiling.
