Taken in a small harbour called Mapua in New Zealand, I was aiming to

capture the low key attitude of the area with the solitude of the

boat and the need for a fresh coat of paint.

THe crystal clear reflection that you photographed here, really adds detail to the water, allowing you to fill more of the frame with it. I think you did a really good job with the boat, letting it live in it´s own enviornment instead of filling the frame like many photographers would do. The boat it´s self fits nicely in this picture: a modern bright white one would stand out badly in this photo. Nice lighting and weather, a blue sky would also be garish in this case, the nice clouds disperse the light perfectly. Also, letting the land end on the left side of the photo (leaving the other side way in the distance) gives the water some more depth and scale, further improving your photo. The only thing that I see it lacks is originality, unfortunately boats and boating tend to be a little over-photographed. One improvement would have been to find something unique about this scene, and stressed it.
