From the Critique Club:
A very pleasant concept and one that meets the challange. Using the tree and its foilage to frame the subject. The hand on the face adds to the waiting theme. Even the angle of the shot adds to its overall pleasant and lazy feeling. The subdued colors completes the flavor.
Our object as photographers is to turn a regular picture into an outstanding one. Often times, once the picture is taken, we have the strenght of cropping and quite often we take it for granted. In this particular case I would have exploited the hand in the face by cropping in tighter and covering the very beginning of the tree trunk to make it an L composition as opposed to the current upside down T.
Suddenly the image rebounds with our subject on the left with a strong supporting tree trunk on his back and the loose foliage above, complemented by the blades of grass from the ground. The water here is so, so. But the grass and earth look good. The crop will then enhance the earth and grass.
A tip on using sharpening tools. Always do it viewing actual pixels and adjust accordingly to avoid disturbing halos.

The halo around the tree is disturbing to me. A result of image sharpening, maybe?

I think a tighter crop to the bottom here would of moved the viewer into the shot. I think your 100% on target for the challenge. Fishing=waiting. Maybe a bit of levels adjustment to brighten the tree and white on his white shirt.
