Hi Stan,
I think this is a wonderful image-it really conveys a sense of time & place-and its a great exposure!...Some questions to consider...: perhaps brightening the blue lifesaving vest the subject is wearing?--it might make the image `pop' more.
Also, what about cropping a bit from the top & bottom so the subject is not quite as centered and so that the horizon line is not almost in the middle of the photo?

So simple not much in the picture, but enough to convey the feeling of the serenity of the morning. I like the water dripping from the paddle and the gentle bow wave as the kayak glides across the still waters.   Posted: 11/14/2019 05:36:31

HI Stan,
This photo is a peaceful one and makes me want to get out on the water and do some paddling myself. I like the reflection, fog, and ripples in the water. They all lend themselves to telling the story that I'm imagining when I view this.
