So you have done exceedingly well here. You have managed to balance the scene very well with your composition.

You have managed to balance your exposure,iso, and shutter speed very well here.

The light is beautiful and the subject matter is excellent. I couldn’t be happier!

Notice with these settings and your camera that you lose a bit of detail in the blacks but that’s ok.

Also note how with this relatively high ISO you get a bit of noise in the details.

I like that everything is in perfect focus and that you maximized your depth of field.

The person in the boat is even looking right into your lens.

The only minor note I would have would have been to wait for the light to get a bit softer. This would allow for a less harsh look. I would also like to have seen that dark tree on the right cropped out of the frame if possible.

Overall you’ve done exceedingly well here and I’m happy that you clearly understood the assignment.

Are you shooting in RAW?

What software are you using on your computer?
