I realize it's an image of fog, but there doesn't seem to be much to hold interest.  My eye starts on the left and follows the trees down to the boat, then out into the back right of the frame, and that's it.  It's not a bad image, though.  Oh, one small thing (very small); at the very bottom right there appears to be something black, only a few pixels.  Could be dust or something, but without a sharp point of focus anywhere in the frame, my eye gets drawn to it.

thank you Mike,
I missed that little spot on my monitor, cropped up a bit to get rid of it.  There's not much interest other than the boat and the fog line over the trees, trying to evoke space and feeling of fog.

Works quite well for me as-is. Muted colors have a calming effect, and the use of negative space works well compositionally. The position of the horizon is in the best tradition of Dutch landscape paintings, i.e., 4/5 of the picture being occupied by the sky. Well done.
