The water is probably pretty cold so the wait is not a comfortable one. Love the reflection, but something in me wishes a bit of air on top. TFS .

Yeah the reflection works very well for me as well and similar to what Michel is saying, I feel the camera needed to be pointed less down, giving more space above and less below.
I detest bugs, especially spiders.

Thank you for your comments.
Yes, you are right to give the upper edge more air,
but unfortunately the background was not so photogenic for that.

A possible solution - a much tighter composition on all sides so that the difference between top and bottom space is not so great. To me, this subject cries out for a vertical shot of the pole, its reflection (what makes the image pleasing and interesting IMO) and the three buoys on the left, eliminating the right buoy. The tighter shot would also eliminate the light colored sand and debris presently at the bottom of the image that presently detract from the reflection and buoys. This image has potential because of the contrast of the three round objects vs. the long thin object (pole and reflection) and the color contrast of the buoys with everything else. We tend to think of contrast only in terms of dark vs. light but these other contrasts can be just as powerful in terms of adding interest to an image.

@Roger Rex
Thank you for your suggestions for improvement and hints for a more dynamic design of my buoy photo,
to achieve a more powerful and expressive image design.
