Not much to it, I know, wondering if any interest, or suggestions.

I like the mood, fog always wins for me. I like the processing. I was thinking on adding a duck, but you need to add two ducks so you end up with three things. BUT... I DO like the minimalistic aspect that you have. As it is, my eye keeps going back to the reads, and it is comforting and wonderful. I like the hint of reeds in the background, it gives wonderful depth.

I love it! As is! Very minimalist but the texture definitely makes it! I personally would not add or subtract a thing from it. Curiously it immediately put me in mind of Andrew Wyeth! Maybe it's the texture, or the detail in the reeds...

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Thanks Piet, I knew there wasn't much to it, but I've been in a not-much-to-it frame of mind so I reckon it suits. Definitely an attempt at the minimal

Texture seems to work best for me in the simpler images.

It does kind of adhere to the Wyeth color palette, perhaps. He is one of my favorites..
