Taken on the shores of Horne Lake, Vancouver Island, BC. The fog made for great shooting all day and night. It was a perfect day to sit by the fire and read.

Greetings from the Critique Club!

Beautiful image, very serene and quiet. Composition is lovely and simple, focus is great with the solidity of the dock on the water. I lived in BC for several years, so am very familiar with the climate there.

The only change I'd suggest is putting your camera on a tripod, going down a few stops - say f.11 for starters - and leaving the shutter open longer. 1/100 is pretty fast for a stationary shot. I think you'll find that you'll get an even greater sense of dof and probably a bit of that nice, slightly silky feel on the water.

Overall a very pleasant photo to look at and thanks for the opportunity to critique it.

Feel free to PM me with any questions,

Very Zen shot, I like the way the background is barely showing through the mist.
