Your second upload here and showing a few common beginners mistakes. Before uploading it would prove beneficial to look through earlier uploads, by others, of a similar nature in an attempt to see what kind of comments applied to those and therefore will apply to yours.
That way you should also be gaining the sort of help and assistance that you are seeking in order to improve your skill in your chosen art form. Following that sort of early learning you will be able to upload pictures displaying improved viewability which will help your confidence and make you feel better about your photography.
You see here you horizon displays a distinct slope down to the left hand, something that has been mentioned on numerous occasions with similar uploads by others.
You are using your lens at its longest Focal length 135mm but you are using a shutter speed of 1/15sec. Previous uploads have explained that camera shake needs to be overcome by having a shutter speed well in excess of the focal length ie faster than 1/135sec. At 1/15sec you will find it extremely difficult to obtain a sharp image.
Your EXIF is somewhat awry, I feel it has been entered manually as you are showing a maximum aperture of f5.6 but have stated that the aperture you used was f4. That is impossible.
Although your flash did not fire it was switched to auto. Switching off in such circumstances is not critical, it just shows a lack of awareness of the camera settings that you have employed.
Compositionally I would have preferred not to have seen the swimmers at each end of your picture. Was it possible to omit them from your viewfinder?
Finally the picture is rather flat and so I have attempted to liven it up a bit in a mod, where I have also removed the end swimmers, juggled the composition a little and straightened up the horizon.

Certainly a lot to consider, however we all have to endure such a vast and lengthy learning curve. My only advice is to listen, take on board what has been said, and go way at put the advice into practice. Remember you cannot climb Everest without taking the first step.

Frank covers most things. There is a bit too much going on and compositionally you need a figure or small group to be your main subject with the crowd as background. 1/15 sec is a far too lw shutter speed and that is why the image is not too sharp. I am surprised that a compact sellected such values.

The interest for me is that person on the left with his arms raised, - lovely.



The conditions made it a little soft and misty, and a little more contrast helps it.


I have loaded a mod, mono, with a tighter crop.


regards

I've cropped it too but I kept the other end.

I've also increased the contrast using curves.
