    The composition is ok as is IMO, but if you were just trying to capture the boat, try cropping it down a little bit. Done correctly you'll still have the cool cloud texture and sand, but there won't be as much empty space in the frame.

    In like the composition and agene that the horizon looks odd, but line on the boat are good, so it must be a little hill or boat is actually setting skewed, the more look at it I think the boat is actually set skewed because the cloud and horizon are nearer in perspective to each other

    Try rotating the image (2deg) so the horizon looks straighter, IMO only it is cropped to tight on the right side

    Very nicely framed and executed image. Might need a slight CCW adjustment to make it appear straighter. But in my opinion, the dip and rise of the sand/horizon is one of the unique aspects of the photo . I would leave it alone.

    I wouldn't change it. I love the expanse of the sky, it gives the feeling of movement.

    Thanks for all the positive feedback. I will try rotating it a bit and see what it look like.

    I really like that. If only there had been something of interest on the left to contrast the boat, it would have been even better. But hey you can do no more than do the best with the hand of cards you're dealt, and I think you did great.

    I really like the colors, but I think that there a little is too much sky. Great photo, though!
