I've cropped the picture a little to take the lady out of the image then cloned out the people swimming out. I've done this because in the title it says "Reviews on the environment" so I thought that it would be better to exclude people from it. I also darkened the sky.

Let me know what you think please.

This is pretty good quality when you consider it was snapped by a telephone - I am getting more and more impressed with telephones, I just wish my camera was as good at making telephone calls!!

I think one of your problem with this is the aspect ratio has not allowed the swimmers to be located in a suitable place to be complementary to the scenery behind. Had you allowed greated depth you could have had them around 1/3 the way in and 1/3 the way up ensuring that the person, extreme left was omitted.

With that you would have a balanced composition rather than having all the action in the bottom LH corner. Keep them coming but always keep an eye on composition, it is very important in the art of photography.

A powerful setting, Henrique, emphasizing the rock formations very well, and the sky is good too.
If you wanted the swimmers to be a more important element in your picture, I would suggest that a vertical format might have suited this scene better. This way you could have included more of the water at the bottom and, as a result, your swimmers would be further up in the frame, and not so close to the bottom frame edge.
I think a lot of the beauty of the scene is in the water, and so would like to have seen more of it.
The lady in the bottom left is an intrusion and although she could be cropped away, it's always best to get your composition correct in the first place. The edges of your photograph are often the last things you pay attention to when clicking the shutter, but they are actually the first things you should be aware of. The four edges of your photograph make up its frame, and it is this frame that defines your picture. Careful choice in framing your picture is one of the most important things you can do to strengthen its impact, and that means adjusting what you see through your viewfinder so that you select the best part of the scene to form your final picture.

Interesting subject that does need a bit of a compositional mod. Definition a touch soft, but a smart sharpen would deal with that. Phone cameras are becoming very good, but are still generally in the home record category I think. The day will come.
