the horizon seems a bit tilted, and there's a bit too much contrast => water is too bright, guy on bench is too dark. and i think composition-wise it would have been better if you had moved three meters to the right, standing directly behind the guy.
I agree with ernie and that trash can bugs me also
It seems a little out of focus to me - but this may just be the water texture and my eye sight - which i have come to realise needs testing. So, pehaps i shouldnt comment until i have done soand got the all clear!
thanx for the input guys !!
I guess like it more than the others do. It evokes a mood.
I don't know anything, but I wonder if a longer or shorter depth of field might improve it. I could live with the background blurred or in focus. Slightly out of focus is problematic.
The slanted railing in front of the guy bothers me. My first thought was that it should be made horizontal, but that would throw off the lamppost and maybe the background. If it were mine, I'd probably try distorting the image to get the railing horizontal without screwing up other things. Don't know if that would be an improvement, though.
Better yet, go back and try again. That's where my self-critiques often lead.
