    What is it you are trying to convey with this image? I can't really get a feel for anything here.

    If you are trying to show an empty feel, I think it would help to show a lot more water instead of the vertical crop here. I like the sky reflected in the water. But I would have guessed it was a lake, instead of a river.

    Can you tell us what you were thinking when you made the shot?

    I don't think I was thinking much of anything, except maybe how cold it was, and that I was grateful that the show had stopped, and the ice had thawed, was tired of looking at white.. the blue was striking after 2 months of white on white..

    ^try to exemplify that by choosing a subject(s) that is simple, but says alot, like maybe a bunch of snow in the foreground then some ice on the water, then some of that nice blue water in the background, perhaps with a few blades of grass sticking out of the snow.

    for your camera specs, it's easier to write and understand for you to put everything in the common format, aka:
    focal length - 114mm (just say the 35mm equivalent)
    exposure time: 1/320
    exposure bias: + or - whatever you use (example: -0.7). this isnt always necessary to put down really, in my opinion at least.
