I agree with dudler's suggestion of cropping off from the right -- and maybe the left. You might even want to crop it in such a way as to put the girl on the 1/3rd vertical line.
I love V1 and V2. V3 is interesting in that it presents us with a nice deep image. By that I mean -- you have the colorful boat and propeller in the foreground and the rest of the shot gives us a nice sense of going back out to the horizon. In V4, I wish you could have gotten closer to the water fowl. They could have served the same purpose as the boat in V3. However, I suppose they might not have been up for cooperating with photographers invading their space.
A wonderful image. I don't agree with meyeview. I like what you did with reducing the saturation of bg without going completely B&W with it. This is a very creative approach and is certainly award-worthy.
