Very classic shot. The deep color saturation is really what makes this a powerful image.

I'm a sucker for this kind of shot. The colours are fantastic! I'd be being pretentious if I even tried to offer any improvements but as a couple of people mentioned below, the position of the boat could have been more favourable for you. Not that you could have done anything about it of course! Fantastic shot.

Ahhhh - so close to perfect! It feels like you snapped the shutter seconds to early or too late. If the boat had been a little to the left I would see a gorgeous reflection of the sun on the water. If the boat had been a little to the right I would see no reflection, just the sun but the boat would be in between the two shores. So almost 10 is nine.

I like this photo, but I would have liked to see the boat just a little more, but gave it a good vote anyway.

This is an amazing shot. The only thing that bugs me is that bright orange shape off the end of the boat. What is that? It disrupts the serene feel of the shot.
