I like this image, very attractive light.
The main point is that the sea appears to slope. It appears to do this for two reasons. Firstly the land on the far side of the water is diminishing, i.e. getting further away from the viewpoint. Second, you camera probably was not level as the slope effect is considerable.
I've done a mod which makes that shore horizontal (which is not actually as it would have been) but greatly improves the image. I also sharpened it a little.
There are no verticals in the image so ok to do this.
Good one

Although the far shoreline is receeding, and will therefore look as if it's not level, your camera was almost certainly not level as well. It's both. I think it needs more foregound interest, but that can't really be helped here.

I have painful memories seeing this shot. I did the Jura fell race in 1984 and 1987, and I have to say I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, running over the tops of that lot. The Jura whiskey at the end was nice though!Wink

Hard to say from looking at it whats level, and what caused it, but whatever the cause, it will look better corrected. Theres some haze there too that the compact had some trouble with, reducing contrast, so a leveling and a contrast adjustment make a difference. Its a godd record shot, not a lot there to focus attention, but the colours are attractive.
