This seems to be one of those photos that's "almost there". It caught my eye enough in the thumbnails view for me to want to look at it as an individual photo. But then I was oddly disappointed. The easiest thing to spot is that the horizon doesn't appear level, all the water is going to run out of the left side of the picture! I then find that the bottom half of the picture doesn't add anything, and in fact the tiny bit of bank on the righ bottom corner distracts the eye. This could be improved by going for a letterbox format, crop away the dead space. The photograph is called "Sunrise" but the sunrise itself is overexposed so that all the colours and glory of the sun in the right upper quadrant are lost - either a grey grad to tone down the sky or simply underexpose to rectify this (if it was shot in RAW then you might still be able to recover some of it).

While agreeing with Merlin on the points he makes, I still like this image and the potential is there for something outstanding.
