I'm sure this is a lovely spot but I think you've tried to get too much into one photo and compositionally it's a bit too busy to take everything in properly. You have the railway line, the rolling sea, the mountains, the beach huts. A railway line can act as a lead-in to the points of interest in the frame, but this one just streaks along the bottom and draws the eye out of the frame again. The eye jumps around the frame from betwen all the various elements, not really able to settle anywhere.
It might have been better to concentrate on fewer elements, such as the beach huts, sea and mountals, and move around and find a nicely balanced composition of all the elements within the frame.
I've uploaded a mofification which is a crop, which is mainly to show how having less elements can be more effective. At the same time I used a curve to brighten most areas apart from the rollers
Just my honest thoughts, hope that's some use
In addition to the above i think WB needs adjusting here a bit too , have done a mod on the original to illustrate the difference
lovely shot ..I like the tracks in the foreground and the little beach houses, lovely shot
