Lovely. Great image!

I would have cropped more to the right to bring out the buildings

Wow, that water almost looks like ice. The sky is a bit blown out.

The sky stinks but the rest rocks.

Not very intersting and burnt out sky.

Only one negative here ... I'd crop tighter into a panorama shot by losing half the foreground which will bring the yellow skater (?) into the picture more. Beautiful colours balanced well with the green roof.

Overall the image is very well done and has no technical shortcomings. My one suggestion for improvement would be to zoom in on the buildings on the right and make them the focal point of the composition. As presented, the treeline doesn't offer much of a focal point. 7

straighten the shoreline/horizon?

Nice posing and nice photo.

Pretty trees; interesting ice. Crop out a bit more sky and foreground ice.
