Although I truly love it even as-written, and my compliments to the author.

soji: My first choice. This is probably a harbor, but I think the haiku complements the picture very nicely without repeating all the elements of the picture.

an'ya: This haiku not only has the boat pulling, it also pulls me as a reader right into it in first thing in line 1. "crawling" mist is a fine choice of words in my humble opinion, even though some would disagree with me that mist can "crawl." I personally think it makes the whole moment, and normally I wouldn't choose a haiku with 2 "ing" words, but this time, it's overpowered by the image. This author breaks the haiku after the word "boat," whereas I would have broken it after "pulls" in line 2, but there are two schools-of-thought on this matter, and either is acceptable I believe. All in all, a good strong haiku that extends the photo, making it seem much more broad in scope via its author's skillful use of the word "moorings."
soji: While the previous haiku brought the silence to our attention, this one draws us to the sounds, and through association, for me, the smells. Again, the reader's experience can bring a haiku to life and that happens for me with this one.
one boat waits

an'ya: I've selected these two which I feel are of equal merit, mainly because both authors are saying pretty much the same thing, yet in very different ways. This shows us the diversity of any given haiku moment, especially when it is coupled with a photograph. These are fine, the first one written in conventional style of (wide setting, subject, verb, and close), and the second one written rather unconventionally, even though it still has the same thing (wide setting, subject, verb, and close. One author sees a lake, the other sees a river, no matter, both are nice haiku.
at the lake

soji: This is a wonderful picture of one moment of a lazy summer at the lake. It is, however, a little wordier than necessary, I would try something like:
