The smoothing of the water has worked very well and this is nicely composed but there are a couple of problems. First, the pier is a little blurry, which suggests camera shake. I assume you were using a tripod but using a remote shutter release or the camera's self timer and, for preference, miror lock-up will minimize that. Second, the horizon is quite a way off level, which rather spoils the effect, since everybody knows that the sea is horizontal.
