A nice pictorial record. Just a tiny bit dark. Brighten up a bit with the Histogram or brightness tool.

It's a very attractive scene. The problem with composing for a subject like this is that the band of foreground water is an automatic barrier, it says 'Stand back, don't move in...' So I would prefer to stoop down lower and include some foreground plants at the bottom of the frame, from where we are standing. But maybe that wasn't available...
The Private sign adds to the 'Keep away' feel, I might try to get rid of that.
The other thing that you can do to make the scene more inviting is to place the main subject less centrally. Here it looks as though the more interesting vegetation was to the left rather than the right of the hut, so place the hut towards the right of the frame and allow the eye to travel along towards it. I'd also like a bit more sky above, not a lot but this looks a bit cramped. But that's how I see things...
I'll try to demonstrate in a Mod.
There are a couple of dust bunnies by the way - it's worth always checking carefully, they do stand out against a clear blue sky!

problem with shooting this shoot is i was on a boat and driving it, or what ever you do to a boat to make it go were you want .lol. so they were fly by shots and not easy to compose . i only have a basic canon editing program and i dont think it has a thing to remove dust ?

I had a feeling that you were on a boat when you shot this, Andrew, and I think that's because you said, "no mooring, spoil sports", as if you would like to have stopped here. You could have thrown a rope around that concrete ornamentGrin!

To take this from a boat, you did very well. Unfortunately, however, your boat probably stirred the water and prevented a better reflection of the hut. It's a very attractive little building, and the splash of colour from the flowers lifts the prolific greens.

I don't know the width of the river, or how far away you were, but the image suggests portrait format to me, including a bit more of the water and reflection, and a bit more sky as well. Even then, I would still like to see the little hut offset in the frame rather than so central.

I don't know what the two signs say, but I would have cloned them out, they draw my eye.
I was considering straightening the water line, but checked and found that the verticals on the hut are true, so the waterline is natural like this.

Pamela.

to be honest its a wide river, but it works like a road and you had to drive on oneside ( norfolk broads) and as you can imagine it was busy . i used a quick shutter to try and cut out the choppy water but it didnt work Sad
