Thanks for the critiques I appreciate the ideas. A bit about the series. The subjects we unplanned and unaware they were being photographed. It was just luck they were there when I arrived. Unfortunately they left about 5 minutes after I set up so I got what I got. The idea was to shoot the sunset with the boats on the water in silhouette and try an idea with a soft ND Grad I had for some time. The idea was to insert the soft ND Grad upside down and only half way through the frame. What was needed was a low intense sunset with a fairly straight low profile horizon and detail in the sky (I live in Western Alberta, not to many of those here). This landscape provided the opportunity, so I tried it out. The idea actually came from the podcast interview with Darwin Wiggett (fantastic photographer and friend) on the Filters episode, he had mentioned Daryl Benson with Singh Ray had developed a Reverse Grad, unfortunately I didn't have one to compare, but now I have a reference for when I do get the chance. This shot was filtered with a Cokin medium ND Grad and a Circ PL Let me know your thoughts, thanks again

For me this one is the best so far. Nice!
The story is clear (end of a fishing day) and the setting sun also leaving suits the story perfectly. I like that the man is sharp here.

image seems to slope to the right just a bit.
Aside from that I'd slap a frame around it.

It's well done. I like the processing and the composition. Well done:)
