I went to the lake to bird and photograph birds, but I spotted this gentleman first. 9/24, Pinchot Lake,York County, PA. Thoughts and constructive criticism welcome.

Very nice capture, David. I Like the mood of the image and how your rendered to tonality. However, I feel there is still something missing.

I am with Scott on this image and would go even further by adding a lot more negative space.
Contrary to what it may be thought I believe that it would add more definition to the subject and would create a better relationship with the bg/surroundings. It would make the viewer notice the subject even more.

It would also add some mystery, inviting the viewer to imagine the rest of the image/story.
Finally it would also add better feelings of solitude, and relaxation. IOW I believe it would add more impact to the image.

Here is a visual depiction of my comments for your consideration.

Anyway, this is how I see the image. At the end it is only your decision which message to send and how you want the viewer to feel about your image.

Very nice, Socrate. You make some great points. Your last line really stands out.

My suggestions would make it more pano, more to "look into" on the left image side and might make the figure appear just a bit smaller.
That said, I think the direction Socrate illustrated is more effective. I like the message of the empty space/lone fisherman in the fog and I suppose you could even extend what he did much further to strengthen that message.
Your image, your message, your preference.

I would have dropped anchor* and waited for the fog to lift a tiny bit more.

*assuming you were on another boat.

But it is what it is.. The bluetone ver is quite pleasant.

Interesting. I was on the shore and had just scrambled out of my truck to get it.

All, here's my final edit (I think). I took all your good advice into consideration.

Late to the dance here but I would say more space to the left. With that, either have it up high in the image to give a sense of distance from shore or low for a more traditional look. I would be inclined to avoid placing the subject in the middle third of the image, height-wise.

Fair enough, Don. So you'd go along more with the other 2 versions?

Probably something along the line of Socrate's version, if you want to lead the viewer to believe the boat/fisher is "out there".

Thanks again. I like that version a lot, perhaps more than my final one. Appreciate the help.

I would suggest you find your own way of composing an image for some individuality as an artist not a photographer. When you compose using the rule of thirds exactly your images will be composed like images of the majority of other photos, with out individuality.

Good point. But to tell you the truth, I never even considered the rule when I placed the subject there. I generally wing it when I compose. Oftentimes that works, but sometimes it doesn't.

I was making a statement about composing in general not just this image. We all start somewhere and need to branch out at some point for individuality. Something to think about for future images.
