The reflection of the foliage in the water is very nice. Unfortunately That's it. The fisherman is out of focus. The 3 branches in the foreground are distracting. There is a lot of un-remarkable area on the right. It looks as though some of the rocks are blown out or just about to be. His vest, shirt and cap seem to be a bit over exposed. The colors are very nice as is the strings contrast with the picture.

This is OT but I would like to tell you the photo in your portfolio "too late to play" is amazing.

Needs a bit faster shutter. The twigs in the foreground are a distraction. A flatter perspective of the subject could help put the fly fisherman in perspective.

Too much empty non productive space in the shot in my opinion.

Composition: 7 - seems to work though there are some distracting elements (bright rocks and OOF branches in foreground)
Exposure: 5 - doesn't seem well balanced, rocks and man's clothing are too bright and the colours seem washed out
Impact: 5 - neutral

Overall - 5

The fly line in front of the person casting is distracting. The shot may have looked better from a different angle.

I think this shot would work better if the fisherman were in focus. I'd also be curious to see a shot with just him and the water, nothing else in the frame.

Nice action, comp, lighting and dof. Foreground a bit distracting.
