Retired is sometimes defined as "withdrawing from active life". I thought this photo might be a little busy, but I really loved the tattered flag and all the activity that the subject matter represents.

Everyone I know that is retired is more active then when they were working :) I think slight bump in contrast could enhance the photo a bit. As is the white boat kind of blends with the white sky. Good luck!

Good oxymoron, flat lighting and centered composition aren't helpful though. 5
