Beautiful light in this one Jean.
Perfect exposure throughout the shot. Shadows still show detail, and there are no blow outs in the highlights.
Had you the D-SLR, I think this would have looked magnificent with an ND grad filter twisted off to the left following the mountain line to the right to really add detail to the clouds too. A tad of dodging back on the boat that would have been filtered by the ND grad would be needed, but I reckon it would have worked.
There'd be a chance of the ducks being blurred somewhat due to the exposure compensation, but again, clone/repair tools would fix that.
Very nice composition, and all round, a great shot.
The camera as a tool has done a sterling job on the exposure etc, but you've approached this brilliantly and used the tool perfectly creating an excellent image.

when I saw the thumbnail I thought it would be the Lake District, a great PoV and wonderful lighting

You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see the tasteful landscape with the boat on calm/clean lake and misty background. The whole is hamonized well by a beautiful color combination and a fine shade. And, the reflection projected to the lake draws out a good effect.

The intensity of sunlight filtering through really added volume and an interesting point on the characteristic old but well maintained boat. So eye catching and the BG of mountain and dramatic sky makes this image more compelling. More interest added with the ducks swimming around in the foreground, really fantastic presentation.

Perfect light management in this shot.
Good details in the shaded area and most lighted ones.
A nice DOF and such spectacular mountains surrounded by low gray clouds.
Perfect exposre all over.

As others have mentioned, you have truly managed to capture fantastic shot with great light. Clouds here helped you as well.
With no bright sun light, the reflection on water is pleasant.
Nice POV, clean shot.
Not sure, but 'fill flash' effect on right side (besides front of the boat) might have added some value.

A nice peaceful image that is well balanced with the ducks, clouds and mountains on the left and the boat on the right. I like the sun peeking through onto the boat creating a nice reflection in the water. You did well with the exposure here.

A wonderful mix here Jean, the boat, it's position and surrounds all gel together, especially the brewing sky.

With the dark clouds in the background I don't know if I want to go anywhere on this boat. I like the composition, good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
