Hi Rob,
I'm not exactly an experienced photographer, but a couple of thoughts:

- I think your horizon is a little off
- No offence, but the subject matter doesn't do too much for me.
- Composition wise, I guess I would like to see some good foreground interest, perhaps some interesting light tones (this seems very flat to me)

- Are there boats in the area? Perhaps a boat in foreground trailing off to the canals and houses.
- I would suggest getting closer to the water, and perhaps seeing what sort of reflections you can get.

Yea wasn't expepcting to have a lot of people go "ooh", "aah" over the shot. I was just trying to excersise technique. The pic was taken in my mother-in-law's backyard. The "lake" is actually man made, to small for medium size boats and fishing aint allowed. It is mostly for ducks and other water fowl and turtles. Good for taking more nature pics but I need a way better telephoto lens than what I have. Thank
you for your opinion.

Technique #1 on landscape shots is usually a straight horizon :P It can be fixed in post, but you lose sides of the image. I would go for cropping out some of the sky since it's blown out, or possibly including more of the water, along with goddo31's other suggestions.
