Agree with Briwooly, a nice composition. Although I have done a very quick mod; lifted the shadow areas and boosted the vibrance I feel the shot could be further enhanced. May have tried to get a lower viewpoint, for example use the log the boatman is leaning on to lead you into the picture

Many thanks for this. The pink cast is how it really looked so it is quite a natural shot.

Miptog, thanks for the modification - it is really much better. I will tweak it a bit more.

I don't like the fact that his face is aligned with the land in the background which makes it difficult to see his face. So, you are right that a higher or lower viewpoint would have put his face against the sky or the sea, which i think would have been better.

Nice composition - I think you could pull out more detail in the boat and sail with a bit of local contrast enhancement. You could also make more of the blue timber on the boat by boosting blue saturation.
