I understand the sun is little over exposed, but still it gives me the impression of a painting.
Lemme know what do you guys think.

Very atmospheric picture Prashant... Compromise needed between overexposing the sun and losing the details in the cloud - I think you did the right thing!
Heavenly! One of my favourite subjects....landscape with sunset ocean & horizon! Totally agree with Dave......The sky looks awesome, balances well with the foreground & the land on the horizon.
Hi Prashant, yes the sky is a a bit too overexposed and the white border doesn't help as it bleeds into it. I think you needed to control the exposure by using ND grad filter, combining several exposures or exposing for the highlights. My only option would be the latter and, if shooting in RAW, most of the shadows could be recovered. That said the dynamic range may be too much for this method.
The other option would be to wait a while and capture the sun lower in the sky.
Compositionally the sky is your main feature so I would crop the bottom to leave one third sea and two thirds sky. Or you could do the opposite and you would lose the burnt out sky (as in my mod).
The boat adds some nice foreground interest and is nicely placed in the frame but could be more prominent. I don't know if you could have zoomed in a bit on the boat.
I hope this helps in some way.
Got to agree with Phil here.
The sea and the boat make a pleasant, fairly interesting image on their own. I'm afraid the sun/sky is just too overpowering for me.
Just my opinion.
I see what you guys are saying, even i felt the same. Actually this kind of shots are very rare when you are at the right place at the very right time. It was a bright sunny day and the boat was there only for a couple of seconds. Moreover I was not using any kind of filter.
But I completely agree with your ideas, composition could have been improved, There is always a next time, will try to get something more interesting in the future!
