it is a pretty descent shot. I think you pushed sharpening right to the edge of acceptance but some inspector may think it is too much. Grayish sky is taking away from otherwise interesting image. Two straight "poles" (palm trees) are distracting. I would personally clone those out and maybe even try to replace sky with some nicer one. Or, I would crop top off.


Clean out tree trunks:

and replace sky:

I see you shot 1/500 sec at ISO 400. Your goal should be to shoot at lowest ISO setting (ideally 100) which you could do easily here since your shot at 1/125 sec should be fast enough.

Thanks Slobo for your valuable comments. I did indeed some sharpening, original photo taken at the end of the day, no much light : it was a little dull. I can try to adjust. Very good improvement without palm trees and with new sky. Thanks

Just from a quick look at the thumbnail here - I suspect that, if you do replace the sky, then you need to have a look at the grey reflection (of the sky?) in the water.


... and, of course, the reflections of the cloned-out trees.

That was my first thought, too.

The reflections from the cloned out palms would best be removed as well.
