I'd have to disagree about the composition being good. The horizon is placed dead centre, and while this can sometimes work in this instance it doesn't. It leads to a boring comp and when the eye reaches the end of the dock it just stays in the middle of the frame because there's nothing in the sky to justify having that much screen space.

Try putting the horizon in the upper third next time, get lower to the dock to create a more unique and dramatic shooting angle and I think you'll find you like that composition more. Anyways, that's just my take on it.

The exposure is well done though. :)

It was a little early but nothing too extreme ;)

Thanks for the advice - I think you make a reasonable point. I did want to get lower but the decking was soaking and I was overdressed :(

I'm with Mr. Green on this. You might also try the same compositional rules try to get a higher angle of view and shoot down a bit on the dock


2 Samuel 9:7-8, "So David said to him, “Do not fear, for I will surely show you kindness for Jonathan your father’s sake, and will restore to you all the land of Saul your grandfather; and you shall eat bread at my table continually.” Then he bowed himself, and said, “What is your servant, that you should look upon such a dead dog as I?”
