hi i have given a moded version for you, see what you think,
For me personally i thought the image was a little too dark, the horizon needed straightening, it needed to have the noise or grain toning down as it was a little too noisy for me, the crop for me was important as there was too much going on around the edges of the image and the sunset was the image here.
I put up the saturation a touch and the warmth to get more impact out of the image this was a personal touch.
The horizon line is pretty dam good and the image is very good in it's self just needed those tweeks to give it an impact in my opinion.

I hope this is helpful to you


Kind regards

Ian.

I've stuck one up too.

As Ian has said, the image is very dark and because of that you'll be able to get away with all sorts of variations on what you did or didn't see!
I've gone a similar route to Ian and straightened the horizon, crooked horizons are a hanging offence according to some on here, then I used the "auto tone" button which gave me the (not very) authentic blue sky. I didn't touch the saturation, in fact I think it's a bit over saturated but that's in the eye of the beholder. I've also cropped it, although slightly differently to Ian's, then de-noised it using Noiseware Comunity Edition, free and an old favourite. Everything else was done using CS5.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Bren.
