    Lovely mood and story, perfect framing, interesting reflections and water texture.   The fading details towards the background give such a feeling of perspective.  Black and white is a good choice, emphasizing the detail without distractions.

    Great composition and POV. Nice symmetry. 

    Suggestions:

    I'm not sure how you are converting your images to B&W, you might have been able to ramp up the contrast on the subject. The focus seems to be the water bottle.

    Great POV, creating a feeling of immediacy and placing the viewer right inside the situation, as it were. Also nicely cropped, showing just enough to set the scene and convey a mood. B&W a good choice to heighten the overall feeling of misty greyness. Also like the frame created by the poles.

    Excellent! I like how the kayaker is framed. Unfortunately for him I suspect he was waiting for a very long time.

    A unique and compelling interpretation of the theme.  The symmetrical composition works very well for this image.  Lots of lovely detail in the foreground to contrast with the misty background.  It feels damp and cool.  Excellent.

    Suggestions:

    I'd be interested to see what the image looked like with a touch more detail in the shadows.  Wishing that the water bottles weren't in the image.  As they are rendered in such detail and are in the foreground they grab attention.

    Great capture.You put the subject in a frame.  Good decision. In this case, rules of a third wouldn't  work so perfect like the image in the center.

    Suggestions:

    Wish to see some clouds instead of fog to get the feeling of stormy weather.

    But it is me.
