Not enough contrast in lights and darks. Need to whiten the highlights in the water ripples and mountains.

This quiet scene would have scored better for me in monochrome, I think -- except for the faint blue in the sky and maybe in the water, I just don't see any color. The scene has potential. I like the idea of including the log for foreground interest, but there is too much space between it and the island; with the right perspective, the island with its lone tree, mountain backdrop and lovely sky should be enough to carry the image.
