Karl, I like the composition, it’s nicely balanced both vertically and horizontally. I like the amount of water you have shown. I also think your placement of the sun works really well, with it just ever so slightly off the center.
Similar to @chris10 I would also suggest directionally taking this a bit lighter. Maybe not quite as far as Chris did, but part of the way there. In Chris’s rework I like how the brighter luminosity better shows off the silhouette of the island, and shows a bit more detail in the water texture.
but overall, this a great image with a lot of mood and drama, well done Karl.
Yes, @chris10 found them. I like the darker mood of the original, although it may be technically a little underexposed relative to what we would see, but it certainly is true to the drama of the sun through the fog.
I’m not sure if I would darken just the trees, as they appear to be lightened by lens flare, but maybe it is just the fog.
My sample is at 100% brightness to find those pesky dust bunnies, which as has been pointed out, overly bright but I think there is a brighter balance available to explore if Karl is of a mind to go in that direction.
