First the above image was edited using Camera-in-the-RAW where I checked the Colour Balance along with the Colour Tint and then in Adobe Photoshop Elements I re-sized to 687 x 1000 px and saved in JPEG

If I have any criticism, Tim….it is that there is a lot of sky….and not very interesting.

Hi Tim.

Not 100% certain if you intended this for critique, but here goes anyway.

Its a typical type of view of the inner waters off the coast, and I believe that area is known as Millionaires Row also, so there could be opportunities for more interesting photos there.

As Peter mentioned, not a lot to attract the viewer. Its underexposed likely due to the bright sky, and an increase in exposure helps.

I have done this in a mod, and cropped to 16X9 removing some sky.

Also, you no longer have to re-size to 1,000 pixels for EPZ, upload it full size, less work for you too!

Happy Christmas, enjoy the warmer temperatures.

Willie's modification brings this to life in a big way, Timothy.

I think the scene needs a focal point, something for the viewer's eye to settle on, be that a duck on the water, an animal or a bird, or even a passing pedestrian or cyclist, none of which can be introduced at will, without waiting an eternity. Perhaps there was an interesting tree nearby, on which you could focus and give it some foreground interest. Even a fence, gate or signpost would do.

Telegraph wires and a real nuisance and can only be removed by cloning in post-processing. However, here they aren't too intrusive because they're not too dark or obvious.
