The colours in the sky are amazing!
The horizon is too central and for me, the boats in the fore-ground are quite distracting though I do like the reflection of the sky in the water. Even so, I'd be tempted to crop it out and focus all attention on that incredible sky.
You've handled the light very well and have got a pretty balanced exposure. Did you use any ND Grads?

I've uploaded a modification to show a different composition.

Wonderful capture nevertheless... I'd love to have taken it! Must have been really impressive being there too.

Hello, Jon. The sky is good but the detail on the land has almost been lost because your camera will have exposed for the sky. I assume that you wanted the land in your image, especially for the sunset reflections in the foreground, so I have taken that into consideration in my modifications. Also, there isn't sufficient interest on the horizon to make the image work well without the bottom part, in my opinion. So I haven't cropped it at all. I selected the sky and land separately and did a curves adjustment on each. After editing, I felt you might like a lighter version so have uploaded 4 mods, each with separate sharpening.
