The silhouetted kayaker set against the golden hue of the water works for me with the black bordering completing, as well as complementing, the image. Placement to the right with a space to the left creates a sense of movement through the image.

Very nice.

IMO the composition would've been much better with just the kayaker (full length) on the
gold water and without the tree which as a photograph he appears about to run into.

That castle wall does make wonderful reflections!

The golden reflection makes a spectacular background; I agree with Dye's suggestions as to composition.

Jeff,
I totally agree with you about full length of kayak, but I would kind of disagree with you about tree. Tree gives the foreground for this image. But I would like to see the tree a little blured giving the 3D impression to the whole view. Picture as presented is too flat.

This is what my camera saw at that moment. It`s not a crop. Just didn`t have enough time (and space)to react. Of course this doesn`t mean it`s a good comp. Yes, it`s flat. Reduced to two dimensions, but having some simplified iconic feel to it. Which is not immanent to photography, and should be avoid.
