Greetings from the CC, I love the feel of this shot, it is wonderfully composed. They are whimisically placed, yet have a feeling of intention to them. The larger number on them on the right, helps to weight your photo in that direction, making it very pleasing to the eye. The reflections are also wonderful. And despite this being 'soft focus' the sharpness still shines thru. The highlight of your shot is the foggy/silvery haze that hangs over it, giving it the feel of winter and chill. Your shot really does create a mood and a feel. I think it is a wonderfully executed shot. I am at a loss to tell you how it could be improved to be honest. The calm and emptiness add to its beauty and simplicity. Excellent work!!

Like the tranquility of this photo. Seems like a early misty morning to me.
Perhaps some tighter cropping would work better, but I like the mood of this. It is like redmapper's "Dream of the Past" (Unfortunately disqualified because of a wrong date).
Nice work!

lovely image and use of soft focus. the reflections are beautiful and i like how buoys in the back seem slightly more covered by the fog (?). the triangle formed is interesting. i want to say a tighter crop might have been nice.. but on the other hand, the feeling of emptiness is good for this photo.. nice work.

I see very mild vignetteing in the corners, crop would have cured this

Very engaging and pleasant image. Have you experimented with this a little darker? Nice work, anyway!

cool. with so little in the frame, a border may have looked nice. the eye is lead from close to distant. 7

The space in this shot could have been enhanced with an off-centre composition that would increase the perception of isolation of the subjects. I really like it, but as a design it is just too central.

However, it's beautifully lit, well shot, crisp and a welcome respite to the filter brigade.
