Still a good image, Kel, despite your reservations.
It's not surprising you had a few blurred images with the weather we've had today!

I love the tones in the colour palette, and the composition. A lovely image, Kel. Happy Christmas. Smile

Nice water movement in the FG and good colour too, gives a fine semi abstract feel and the pier and lighthouse look very sharp at this size of view. I think you should be happy coming away with this shot.

Actually, this is very eye-catching, and a slight lack of sharpness is not necessarily a bad thing...

I'm conducting a war on excessive sharpness (well, strictly, excessive sharpening), and even got to the point of blogging about it on here. There was a response, quoting Henri Cartier-Bresson - "Sharpenss is a bourgeois concept."

For some pictures, razor sharpness is artistically necessary, and satisfies the craftsman inside us. For others, it's irrelevant.

But it is good to have the choice, and a Benbo can be your friend: while they aren't the lightest or smallest tripods, they are versatile, and pretty solid, as well as being British... You do feel a bit of a fool on a landscape course, carrying one in your hand, where everyone else has a nifty carbon-fibre thing that folds up to half an inch long, and weighs less than a credit card...

By the way - the title is as lovely as the shot. It sets an expectation for the picture, which is thoroughly fulfilled!
