Lovely shot -- just invites you to dive in. The colours are fantastic and the planks really draw you right into the scene. The curved horizon is a slight niggle (wide angle lens?) -- perhaps you could photoshop it straight?

Just looked at the original -- you've done a fantastic job!

Nice shot, agree with Dave, horizon looks a bit skew. Gets a click though.

There are some nice colours working in this picture, and I do like it, but I have another little niggle.

In the original, the horizon lies at roughly the end of the planks, but in your Photoshopped rendition, you have chosen to place the horizon much higher. I agree that you were wise to move it away slightly from the end of the plank, but I am wondering if you have maybe gone a little too far, throwing the perspective off just a bit; it looks somehow like the plank is pointing down towards the sea in this version.

If you wanted to fix that(a big if - its really not necessary as the picture is more about the colours and abstraction than stuff like this), you could try using a perspective transform on the ocean layer of your image, and squash it slightly, spreading out the nearest part of it. I think that would correct the sense of contradicting perspectives.

But like I say, its a minor thing, and its still a very nice, simple image. So have a click.
