It would be nice to have some foreground interest drawing you into the the rest of the frame

I agree with miptog about the foreground interest, but it is a nice shot nonetheless and worth getting wet feet for. You must have had a calm day to risk a 30 sec exposure. I have just come back from the Outer Hebrides and my kit would have blown away in 30 secs!

I have uploaded a mod where I have cropped off the bottom. It is good to have something along the bottom to hold the shot in but that thin strip of land acts more as a distraction.

In my mod I have also boosted the contrast, applied selectively to the rocks on the left and the water. This helps to give the shot a boost.

Thank you, Yes it was a calm day, unlike lately with our winds, which are still at it. Tried to get some photo's yesterday and the wind was blowing the tripod all over the place. Need a stronger one I think. Your mod looks so much better, thanks for the suggestions.
