Hi Diane,

Its an image with mood, and some meaning for you. Looks like it was quite calm and peaceful at the time.

A few suggestions to improve it.

Its cropped leaving a white line on the left, check after you crop.

Its a little noisy, but you have provided no shot details at all, so I dont know if its due to high ISO or processing, - either way Ive 4reduced noise in the mods.

The composition is too wide in comparison to height for proper balance. There need to be more sky, which will place the boat lower in the shot, on a third.

I cant really see a horizon, but using the ripples in the distance as a guide, the horizon is not level, - going downhill to the left a little.

Ive loaded 2 mods, - one as per the suggestions with added sky, - and I would also suggest removing that line running out of the frame on the right, as well as the large orange buoy.

The second mod is a very minimalistic mono, which I think suits this quite well.

Hope this is helpful, - and please remember to provide all you shots settings for a better critique!

The potential is there but you have some problems. Straighten the horizon first, then lift the contrast to give the image some punch, then get rid of the orange float.

Thanks everyone these were taken when i first had my SRL a couple of years ago so the settings were most likely all wrong for the shot. As there was mood in the shots i hoped to adjust and try to save them
I will try your ideas and see how i get on
