    Thanks for the votes and comments. This did better than I expected it to.
mrsawyer, the pose was just what it was. I don't know this guy and didn't draw his attention. Back pack? That's for him to know. I think your suggestion to remove the darker blue at the top is a good one. It looks better that way for sure.

    A peaceful-looking place, but the pose of the subject seems off. I am left wondering, "why is he wearing a backpack while fishing?" Did you consider cropping the top of the photo to remove the blue that appears above the overexposed reflection? I think it may enhance the feeling of solitude. Still in my favs.

    Lovely shot. Nothing like fishing for a little solitude! The bird on the dock is a nice extra touch and gives the shot a useful depth reference. In my favourites.

    with the very skilled shag on the pier end you would be lucky to catch anything

    I know so many people who use the solitude of fishing to de-stress from their busy lives. The relaxed stance says it all. The sitting bird seems to confirm the peace and quiet of the lake.

    Water seems to feature a lot in the photos. This is a good one.

    Nicely composed with the figure to one side and the peer with bird to the other.

    Great shot. Fishermen and photographers often spend a lot of time alone. You have certainly captured it nicely. I am not sure the bird helps.
