I Jim - I think the photo is pretty fine as it stands - clear and sharp, colours are strong and realistic and there's a nice splash of water as an extra treat - and I like that he isn't looking at you. Nothing really to fault, just a couple of ideas.

Might be nice if there was a bit more space ahead of him, something to row into...and possibly lose that line darker line at the top of the pic, to make the water more consistent. And, finally, lose the signature, it's distracting, adds nothing and could easily be removed anyway.

But the pic itself is great - not sure if you know the guy, but if you do I'm sure he'd love a copy of this. Nice choice of f8 to get the DOF.
