    Nice pic, but I thought the theme was people, not person? [/pedantic] :)

    I like the silhouettes and the reflection. Is that the bank just caught at the top of the picture? Looks line a line of some kind?

    I agree with doug, about the line at the top. To eliminate it you could crop it very slightly though then the fishing rod would be too close to the top of the frame.

    Yeah it's the far bank of the loch, well the bank of a small island in the loch.

    I was (am) planning to use a silhouette theme for mine - any advice on that? I guess you just need the light head on...? Anyway, I love this shot, and think the bank actually adds to the it, adding a little context.

    Make sure the sun is in the right place and use curves.

    I like the composition & tone, but the reflection on the guy's back is slightly distracting. Might look a bit cleaner with that cloned out. :thumb:

    Being an avid [course] fisherman myself... I love that pic Yoda :clap: :cooldude: :rock:

    I don't suppose you have/could conjure up a larger version of it (1600 x 1200), which I could use as a desktop do ya (with your permission of course)?

    i like it. my only qualm (is that even a word?) would be that the man isn't vertical. couple of degrees clockwise and it'd be spot on for me.

    loving the tone

    When i look at the picture i always feel its tilted down to the bottom left corner. Looking at the horizon though, its straight. Is it barrel distortion that makes it feel tilted?
