Looks like paradise...
Only thing I would do is get the horizon strait...

No details to go on. You muzt straighten that horizon, though. There may be curvature, but not that much. Decent shot from anaircraft with double perspex windows I guess.

An attractive shot, and quite decent from an aircraft. No exif data.

I like the boat in the bottom, and would rotate as in the mod.

Hi, Nicolas, and welcome to the Critique Gallery.

You haven't posed any specific questions or queries, so I'm assuming that you're loking for general comments.

Without seeing the EXIF data, it's hard to be very specific, but in general, shooting through the window of an airliner, you should expect quite a lot of image degradation. To avoid the often optically-compromised window doing too much damage to sharpness and contrast, it's a good idea to use jsut about as wide an aperture as you can.

Autofix in Elements has been a good friend to me in such circumstances, restoring a balanced palette of colours - though it didn't work for me here.

I think the advice on rotation and cropping is good - alternatively, go for an even more-sloping horizon, and make it a feature of the shot - or avoid having hte horizon in shot completely.
