Agree with Raimund.

On top of that, I get very curious about the acoustics! Was it a lot
of leaves, trees and reflecting surfaces? It sounds to me as if the
mic's were placed in a "hall", almost like indoors, and I hear the
same sound coming from different directions, a bit out of phase.
The water sounds "indoors" and difficult to localize, almost like
mixed in from another track. Is it in front of the mic's or at the
back? Blumline is not always the best, even though I think it is used
too little.
