Hello, Unfortunately, the exposure isn't very good. It's underexposed, and it's rather noisy.  Too much light from the background has made the fisherman dark. White balance also is an issue as it is just a bit too blue overall.

You exposed for the sky which made the shadows too dark. Post processing for exposures creates noise and artifacts. Here you should have made an evaluated exposure and then corrected the shadows and highlights in post processing.

Hi @NAPAO , Color fringing is visible on the edge of the twigs and branches. The capture is underexposed, noisy and has a white balance issue. Best wishes JG Photographer and Nutrition Author
