    You should do some reading up on composition. You have a few common compositional "mistakes" if you will. The horizon is centered, and the sun is dead center in the frame. A simple thing to do is divide the frame into thirds horizontally and vertically, and place important objects, like the horizon, or the sun, on one of these 3rds intersections. The exposure is nice. In photoshop, I would look at some different crops.

    Matt has said it all. It really is amazing the difference the "rule of thirds" makes to the composition of an image. When learning this is the first rule to learn I think - although not every image has to be like that.

    Rule of thirds would help yes but I almost like the symmetry of this. Rules can be broken when you have a good reason ;) As far as post processing goes, I would bump the contrast and saturation, PERSONALLY. Play in curves! And I would do a defog.
