A fine image. The only quibble for me is the haze. It can be difficult to get the haze field to behave as you intend. For me it is best to have no noticeable haze in the foreground while there should be plenty of haze in the distance to hide that horrible Bryce horizon line. I always start my haze settings with maximum background and minimal foreground. Set Density to 100%. This will give you the haze you need in the background. Then set the thickness to a decimal, I usualy use 0.8. This will control your foreground haze keeping it minimal or even unnoticeable in the foreground yet still thick and realistic in the background. Haze is an importan consoideration as it gives the atmosphere some weight and it helps to establish the sizes of the objects and the distances between them.

I like this one very much. Good colours, very nice water. This appears to be a fairy place so I don't miss the haze too much, though this picture could do with a bit of it. The boat doesn't lie properly in the water. The sails are up, so there are people in it and it should be fully in the water.
