This has such great late afternoon (or early morning?) light! Just golden. It's a very straightforward composition, of course, but that's sort of the point with a salt marsh :) I like that you've included the reeds in the front, and the water does a decent job of breaking up the straight lines. Nice capture overall, and a very nice perspective on a place so near a huge city, yet seemingly so isolated.
