Tell me what you think. I took lots of this type of image on my trip, but now am not confident of them.

be more confident! Love the steel color of the water. For fun might need something in near water as subject (beat up skiff for example).

I like it....a natural looking shot.. they say horizon centered is difficult to pull off....I'd say you came close but for me a touch more foreground and less sky might have improved your intended subject

A lovely scene it is, but I'm a little confused of you not being confident.

Possible add a colorful rowboat or two on the left bank area.

Don’t shoot what it looks like. Shoot what it feels like.

Thanks, Piet.
Sometimes I would find the skiff and sometimes not, so of course I have a stash of them I could use...

Similar to what Piet said.

Thanks Dave. This scene (some combination of weathered fish house, rocks, sky, water, boat, traps, dock) was replayed all over Newfoundland and Labrador. So I have extra elements I can add!).
