Much better without a lot of sand in f/g.Nice tractor.
Good sky detail too.
An overall good shot Netta.
Remember you don't have to have subject right in centre.
On thirds is good.

There is so much potential in this image, using the vehicle as your point of interest.
Kate makes a good point, Netta. In fact, avoid placing your subject in the centre whenever possible. For instance, anything that has the potential to move, be it a vehicle, insect, person, animal, etc., needs space in front of it, for it to move into, and less space behind it. Try not to get anything moving OUT of the frame, but INTO it. Your tractor therefore needs less space on the right, behind it.
This is where the rule of thirds often works for a composition such as this, and makes it far more viewable. Move out of the snapshot idea, Netta, and move towards the challenging world of making images aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
Also, you need a bit more space below the tractor because it's too close to the bottom frame. Look at your viewfinder or screen, compose accordingly, then shoot, and shoot again. Alter your viewpoint, move around, crouch down, until all elements come together nicely. Envisage this in portrait/vetical mode, for instance, with more space below the tractor and boat, placing it in the bottom right third, with a layered effect behind it of sky, cliffs, houses, sea and shore.
