I couldn't agree more, Gavin!  Beautifully composition and capture of the action.  Gorgeous colour palette and wonderful layers.

The overall image brought back memories of my Dad taking me fishing in the early morning hours while on vacation in southern Maine many years ago. Thanks for the memories of our favorite pastime together.

So iconic- beautifully done- I can just feel the excitement, seeing the bent pole and the fisherman reeling in. Congratulations!
