Sloping horizon.... apart from that, it looks good.

Most comments that apply here have been mentioned in lots of previous uploads. It helps to look at the offerings of others before uploading your own as often those comments can help you to learn your chosen art. It is not just comments applied to your pictures that are useful, we can all learn from viewing and digesting all comments applied to all pictures loaded into EPZ.

1. Sloping horizon
2. Horizon slightly too close to central in vertical palne
3. Sun too central
4. Figure too far to the RHS

How about "Amongst the Waves", or "Cooling Off" or something similar for your title?????
The image has a lot of potential, Shydallah. Your figure is nicely silhouetted against the sunset sky, your sun isn't too bright and the waves are a nice feature.
With all that you have learnt on this site so far, you should have been able to compose this shot in order to achieve the potential that was before you. The fact that there are no clouds in the sky is an insignificant aspect in my mind. The sky has a beautiful hue.
When composing your shot, you needed to aim for your figure to be further away from the right frame edge, for your sun to be more offset in the frame, for your horizon to be straight, and for the Rule Of Thirds to be implemented, as far as possible.
I have done a modification to show you what I mean. I straightened the horizon, re-positioned your figure, cropped to a square format, achieved one third water and two thirds sky on the vertical, and placed the sun one third down from the top. With a little more time, I could probably have repositioned the sun so that it was even less central than this, perhaps more to the left.
I also adjusted Levels to get the silhouette darker, added some saturation to boost the colours, and sharpened.
Pamela.
