    I think if you cropped the horizon it would be improved.

    Hello Jeremy and welcome to the forum.

    There are a lot of physical elements in this shot.

    1. the vertical poles
    2. boat
    3. backround
    4. railing
    5. wall
    6. platform
    7. lines in different direction, including the cement platform and wall
    8. water

    I think you could try to focus on just a few if not less of the elements. The eye does not know where to focus.

    The photo is also a little crooked.

    I like how you treated it as a b&w. Keep up the good work and posting for us.

    To be honest "NO" steps, boat on water and a few poles, what is the main subject ?

    Personally, I like it, but I agree with Stormchase about the tilt, though white's suggestion of cropping out the horizon should make that less noticeable.
