This photo submitted by Tom Reed would benefit from better composition. Maybe shooting the same shot vertically would be more interesting. Or including the entire boat in the picture with the trees and water in the background might have been nice as well. Also, focusing on the trees and their reflections in the water, although cliché, is always beautiful. I like the black-and-white conversion, but the exposure is off. The shadow on the left is underexposed and the water in the foreground is blown out. Try using an 18% grey card next time to meter the light and get a better exposure.
