For future reference, Ronald, you could have uploaded this original into the Modifications section for yesterday's upload. That way, it's easier to compare the 2 and to do modifications on the original. All comments and modifications are then under the same upload.

The larger picture does have impact, but I feel that a crop improves it. If I had this original yesterday, I would have left a bit more space on the right, the area into which the fisherman is facing, and would then have offset the boy and man more to the left. Then, with the adjustment to the sky, it's a fine image.

The composition is more inclusive here but still benefits from a crop from the left.
Given that the whole of the angler's rod is in frame here, it's surprising that you clipped it in your first upload.

However, that sky is a real issue. Given the high contrast black and white of the foreground and sea, the sky is low contrast and does have xome colour. I tried heavily increasing the saturation to satisfy my suspicions. Given the nature of the light I'd expect to see that same high contrast in those clouds.
So it looks to me like a poor mono conversion (I wonder what method you used) and unsympathetic treatment of the sky. Descriptions of your processing hlps us to help you. I can't believe this is as it came from the camera and if it was I'd be very worried.

It's a good location with potential and definitely worth another visit or two, in differing lighting and weather conditions.Even without the angler, the statue makes a good focal point.
