Nice shot of a Splash...and that is about it..and a bit off too...I hope I gave a bit of bite to the rocks and some blue to the sea, I was tempted to loose the horizon line but would have lost some splash there...Just ideas for you to move into her from me...Hope that you like the Mod.

Kind regards Chen.

Hmmm. A nice enough shot but as Chen has said, the splash is the only thing going on.

I've uploaded a mod in which I've applied an "S" curve and tweaked it a little more using the "shadows/highlights" tool, all of which has brightened it up a little.
I've got rid of the ships on the horizon (which I've straightened) with a combination of cloning and the "content aware tool" and most obviously, I've given it a square crop. (I actually cropped it by eye, so it's not properly square but it looks OK!)
Finally, I sharpened it again.
Hope this helps.

looks like you have all the right assistance above.

the subject is good, the lighting is fine, the exposure is about right and the timing good enough to catch the spray in the air. its interesting to try different exposure settings regarding shutter speeds for this , slightly longer and you get lovely streaking .

clearly the horizon is off level and in sea scapes it is really important to get this right. it can be corrected post process in photoshop in a couple of ways and if you need assistance dont be afraid to ask.

i would suggest a lower viewpoint next time and this will help set the spray against the sky for more impact.

also id crop out or clone away the ships off the horizon, cropping the left would take the spray further from centre which would help the composition and i would also suggest losing some of the rocks from the base before sharpening the lower area but not the sky.

hope this helps
